The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands
On September 30, Governor Eloy S. Inos and Lt. Governor Jude U. Hofschneider signed a proclamation declaring October as Information Literacy Awareness Month in recognition of the critical lifelong value of information literacy to their island communities.
Christopher Todd, Director of Library Programs and Services at the Northern Marianas College and John O. Gonzales, Executive Director of the CNMI State Libraries led this initiative along with participating members of CAALM (CNMI Association of Archives, Libraries, and Museums).
The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands is the first of five, inhabited U.S. territories to issue a gubernatorial information literacy proclamation.
