Governor Jay Inslee has proclaimed October as National Information Literacy Awareness Month in Washington State! Thank you for your partnership on this important initiative. As stated by the National Forum for Information Literacy (NFIL): “As a member of the 21st century workforce skills movement, the practice of information literacy nurtures the development of a critical skill set needed so that any learner and/or worker can thrive and compete effectively in today’s global digital economy.  As we move further into the 21st century, we are convinced that information literacy will become the standard-bearer for academic achievement, workforce productivity, competitive advantage, and national security.”
