The Literacy Readiness Inventory (LRI)
The Literacy Readiness Inventory (LRI) will help you identify, articulate, and reflect upon how your library approaches literacy. The LRI is divided into three sections: Meeting Community Needs, Demonstrating Financial Commitment, and Supporting Partnerships and Advocacy.
Complete and submit the LRI online
Your responses will generate a "tool kit" of related resources including links, titles, and
abstracts, as well as examples of sound literacy practices collected from
libraries across the country. This information will help you reflect on your
library's literacy accomplishments and identify gaps in literacy services,
tell your library's literacy story to the community, the media, and the profession,
and complete grant applications for literacy-related library funding.
