More about this event (pdf)

National Family Literacy Day was created by ABC Life Literacy “to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family… just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills… and can help a parent improve their skills as well.”

Check out their website for a list of easy 15 minute activities, Robert Munsch’s tips for reading with your children, family literacy facts & stats, and more.

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and without their commitment, support and hard work, so many of our initiatives would not be possible.

Learn about volunteering at the Centre for Family Literacy here, phone the Centre at 780-421-7323 to arrange an interview with the Volunteer Coordinator, or email:
