There is lots of news coming out of the nation's capitol these days that is met with mixed reviews, but there is only one way to spin this story and that is inspiring, hopeful and a foundation this country is built upon, empowering the youth with education and knowledge. Last week 4-year old Daliyah Marie Arana served as librarian for a day and The Library of Congress.
"I read 1,000 books by the time I was 3 years old and I hope to read 100,000," she told an Atlanta local news station. Arana is from Gainesville, Georgia where her parents signed her up 1,000 Books B4 Kindergarten when she was 2 1/2, she completed it quickly. The program is based on the honor system and as you can tell in the clip above Arana's reading abilities are advanced as she reads a speech by William Lyons Phelps and reads his words beautifully, "Books are of the people, by the people, for the people," she croons. "Literature is the most immortal part of history."

As Arana wants to be a librarian as soon as possible and she is already inspiring literacy, as I'm feeling inspired to pick up a book and start reading as soon as this article is finished!
