Family Literacy Day
Sunday, December 31, 2017 - 2:16pm
Family literacy programs focus on parents as the means to improve the reading and writing skills of all family members. By reading to children and engaging in fun literacy activities, parents are actively keeping their own skills sharp while at the same time strengthening the relationship between the family which, in turn, encourages lifelong learning.
Family Literacy Day® is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.
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.

On Saturday, January 27th, Regina Public Library will be holding events at nine of their branches from 1:30-3:30 pm. This is a chance for Regina residents to visit their local library and celebrate the joy of reading together. The afternoon will be full of family friendly activities organized by library staff, kicked off by a formal program with library and community leaders.
