Celebrate News Engagement Day on Tuesday, Oct. 6; you can make it part of National Newspaper Week, Oct. 4-10

Tuesday is News Engagement Day. It's a day to encourage people to read, watch, like, tweet, post, text, email, listen to or comment on news, says website, which offers resources for participation in the day.

Though it's not affiliated with National Newspaper Week, which goes from Oct. 4-10, the two observations can easily be combined. 

The day is an opportunity for local news outlets to remind readers (and potential readers, on social-media platforms) why it's important to read the news, and how local journalism and news literacy affects democracy and the wellbeing of communities.
