Keeping books in the hands of children is a mission for many North Dakota teachers. They came together today for an annual conference.

The North Dakota Reading Association is celebrating 50 years. Speakers across the country came to share their ideas to actively promote literacy in schools. It’s a concept that has changed dramatically with the influence of technology.

“We want books in the hands of children always, but I think what technology has done for us is get the word out about those books. From twitter, where teachers talk about books that are popular in the classroom, to children in the classrooms creating videos and doing book talks and that sort of thing,” said president Melessa Bosch.

Tomorrow morning on capitol grounds, the NDRA is hosting a Lace up for Literacy 5K. For registration, visit:
