Celebrating Family Literacy Day at the Public Library

Sunday, January 27th, from 2 – 4 pm, join the library for some creative and fun family activities.

ABC CANADA Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by the Canada Literacy Foundation in 1999, and held on January 27 each year. This special day promotes the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. Family literacy helps reinforce the importance of learning with children as a means of building the knowledge necessary for future skills, and helps adults maintain their literacy skills.

Join us at the Tumbler Ridge Public Library for an afternoon of books, stories and a craft. The highlight of the afternoon is a demonstration of the library?s new ?TumbleReadables? computer books, stories and games.

To add to the fun, there will be several draws during the afternoon for prizes and tickets to see Robert Munsch in May in Dawson Creek.

Mr. Munsch is the honorary Chair of Family Literacy Day. He will be interacting with kids and families across Canada. Kids can post their story ideas for Mr. M on www.ytv.com or send in audio clips of your family reading Mortimer to www.treehousetv.com . Drop by the library for further ideas on other fun activities to enjoy as a family. Happy Reading!
