Family Literacy Week January 20-27

January 09, 2015

​In the week leading up to Family Literacy Day (January 27), our community is hosting several family events to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities.

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 a parent improve their skills as well.

Below is a schedule of events for Campbell River's Family Literacy Week 2015:
