Helen LiMarzi, Director of Literacy Volunteers of Putnam County and Rotary District 7210’s Literacy Chair, discusses literacy—the ability to read with understanding–in the 21st century and the impact of electronic books on reading. Illiteracy still exists, but service organizations such as Rotary and Literacy Volunteers have developed programs that teach reading and encourage reading among reluctant readers. People may visit a local library for specific information about all kinds of literacy support. With heartfelt emotion, Ms. LiMarzi describes the joy of teaching a child to read or improving the quality of life of an adult who reads to his or her child for the first time.
