The North Bay Public Library is celebrating Family Literacy Day on Saturday, January 27.

 

Family Literacy Day is a national initiative to raise awareness about the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.  This year’s theme is ‘Learn at Play, Every Day’.

 

Families are invited to visit the North Bay Public Library Children’s Department to explore the wide variety of materials available that include books, movies, music, and interactive educational games that the whole family can enjoy.

 

Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development, improving a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well says a news release from the library.

 

Families looking for more ways to participate Family Literacy Day can visit www.FamilyLiteracyDay.ca for more activity ideas and free downloadable resources.
