Free Family Literacy Day activities coming up

Family Literacy Day takes place every January 27 to raise awareness about the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.

“Family Literacy Day is a great opportunity to encourage and grow a love of reading. Across the province our public libraries will be hosting free activities and events for the entire family. As parents, we play an important role in encouraging reading for fun, and our reading behaviours influence our child’s attitude towards reading and future habits. Family Literacy day is a great time for families to come together to take part in fun, literacy activities and the library is the perfect place to explore books and reading together.”

- Education and Lifelong Learning Minister Natalie Jameson
