PROCLAMATION



WHEREAS, the ability to read and process information is a basic survival skill in our global information society; and,

WHEREAS, the reading proficiency of teens has remained stagnant over the last 30 years; and,

WHEREAS, the number of students who can read but choose not to do so; and, 

WHEREAS the most effective way to improve reading skills is to read regularly and often; and,

WHEREAS, too few teens think reading is a valuable tool for enjoyment and relaxation as well as for schoolwork; and,

WHEREAS, regular daily reading for the fun of it creates the reading habit for life; and

WHEREAS, parents, teachers, librarians, and all concerned adults can serve as role models by reading for fun themselves; and

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that The City Council of the City of Brentwood does hereby acknowledge October 13-19, 2002 as Teen Read Week and encourage teens to read for the fun of it.

Dated this 8th day of October, 2002.
