Library Celebrates Family Literacy Day

WELLAND –  Welland Public Library is celebrating Family Literacy Day on Saturday, January 23 at both library branches!

Times: Main Branch: 10:30 – 11:30 am   |   Diamond Trail Branch: 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Come with your family and friends to play Book BINGO and/or Library-opoly. There are prizes to be won, snacks to enjoy, and fun for all!

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. Even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help parents improve their skills as well.
