A NOTE FROM THE ILA COORDINATOR

Welcome to the Nebraska State Literacy Association. This community of dedicated educators, families, and community members have been together for nearly fifty years. Formerly known as the Nebraska State Reading Association, we moved to Nebraska State Literacy Association to be more inclusive of all aspects of literacy and to be consistent with the International Literacy Association's name change.

We are committed to improving lives through literacy PreK- adulthood.  We work to promote literacy and literacy initiatives throughout our state.

As an advocacy group, we seek to support the efforts of local and state policymakers, urging them to carefully consider how they can support literacy development.

We seek to partner with other organizations to improve the quality of life for all Nebraskans. We hope to inspire our communities to embrace literacy for all.

We hope you will join us in our efforts. Please reach out to any of the Board Members with your questions and ideas.

Sincerely, 

Tish Rezac
