Literacyworks presents Word Up! A Community Learning Fair, taking place this year on October 7th at the Marin Center Exhibit Hall in San Rafael. This year’s fair will bring in an estimated 3,000 participants to celebrate the joy of lifelong learning. Our goal is twofold: one, to increase awareness of learning opportunities in the North Bay which will lead to an increase in literacy levels and the knowledge base of our population; two, to raise funds that support literacy programs in North Bay county libraries, schools and community organizations.
