Program Description

Event Details

Join the library and ISU 4U Promise for a screening of The Right to Read and a discussion about early literacy. Every community should understand what it takes to make sure all children can learn to read. The Right to Read shares stories from communities who found a way to make a difference through science-based solutions, spotlighting stories of an NAACP activist, a teacher, and two American families who fight to provide our youngest generation with the most foundational indicator of life-long success: the ability to read.

Dinner will be available for first 35 attendees, and a discussion after the film will be facilitated by Iowa State University School of Education professors.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.
