In a state in which 1 in 8 adults cannot read and the reading proficiency rate for third graders is under 50%, the educational importance of libraries cannot be understated. But the value of our Tennessee public libraries doesn't stop at education.
If you can read this, you can fill out an application, write a check, shop for groceries, read to a child, and understand the bus schedule. What if you couldn’t? On top of that, what would happen if you couldn’t speak English? Renting an apartment and going to the doctor would be come terrifying and overwhelming. 44 million adults in the United States are unable to even read a simple story to a child, and 1 out of 5 Nashville adults is functionally illiterate.
