Family Literacy Month

Posted On Wednesday January 05, 2022

This January let’s celebrate the importance of literacy, learning, and connection. As always, January 27 is Family Literacy Day in Canada, and to commemorate the importance of this day, Halton Hills Public Library (HHPL) will be featuring new collections, resources, and initiatives throughout the month.

Visit HHPL to raise literacy awareness and have fun at the same time! By reading to children and engaging in entertaining literacy activities regularly, adults actively help children improve their skills. Family literacy activities help strengthen the relationships between family members (parents, grandparents, siblings) which encourages lifelong learning and improves the reading, comprehension and writing skills of the whole family.

Share the joy of literacy!
Help us spread the word throughout Halton Hills! To show your love of reading and learning, HHPL would like to feature you reading, crafting, baking, or playing a game with a family member, child, or grandchild. Share your photo with HHPL on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn) using the hashtags #HHPL and #FamilyLiteracyDay. HHPL will share, reshare and retweet your post.

For more information about Family Literacy events and programs at HHPL, please visit the Halton Hills Public Library website calendar. Be sure to check back regularly as more programs will be added.

Visit us online 24/7 at hhpl.on.ca to place a hold on items for pick up in branch or drop by your favourite branch to browse collections, games, movies, and resources. Engage with us through social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, or YouTube).
