(October 2014) Family Literacy Day 2014 materials:

Literacy NL encourages community organizations schools and libraries to join with us again to celebrate Family Literacy Day® by submitting an order for materials.

The materials order form can be downloaded HERE . Materials can also be directly downloaded from the ABC Life Literacy Canada website.

Literacy NL sends family literacy day packages out to all schools, libraries, family programs, and other community based organizations requesting an order. These packages will be used to help celebrate Family Literacy Day on or about January 27th.

Family Literacy Day, held annually on January 27, was developed by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 to celebrate adults and children reading and learning together, and to encourage Canadians to spend at least 15 minutes enjoying a learning activity as a family every day.

Provincial and Territorial Coalitions across Canada partner with ABC Life Literacy Canada to promote and support local family learning activities.




Congratulations to Family Literacy Day 2013 contest winners!
