The Latino Literacy Roundtable, which was initiated by the School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS) at the University of Arizona, is happy to announce new partnerships with REFORMA National and the Arizona Historical Society. REFORMA National and the Arizona Historical Society will join SIRLS, UA Libraries, UA Department of Mexican American Studies, Tucson Council Member Regina Romero (Ward 1), El Pueblo Library of the Pima Country Public Libraries, and other community partners including the Tucson chapter of REFORMA in putting on the 2014 Latino Literacy Roundtable.
Through the efforts of SIRLS faculty member Patricia Montiel Overall, the Latino Literacy Roundtable was created in 2012 with the mission of providing opportunities for scholars and community to meet, discuss, and share information about the development of literacy of Latinos in English and in Spanish.
