September 8
Literacy Day in Oakville

The Oakville Literacy Council made a huge leap forward in 2006, when Oakville Mayor Ann Mulvale proclaimed September 8 as Literacy Day in Oakville. She said, “I would urge all residents to support the activities of the Oakville Literacy Council, especially by encouraging potential adult students to take advantage of their learning program.”

International Literacy Day is celebrated each year on September 8 to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals, communities and societies. It is a worldwide initiative of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. Visit unesco.org/education for an interesting global perspective on literacy.
