Nov 1: Happy National Family Literacy Day !

Have you ever wondered . . .
What can children teach their parents ?
How will your family celebrate National Family Literacy Day ?
Have you learned any important lessons lately ?

Celebrate the wonders of families reading and learning together by hosting special events and activities focused on family literacy.

National Family Literacy Day has been officially celebrated on November 1 since 1994. However, many communities plan events throughout the entire month of November.

What’s happening in your community? In many areas, schools, libraries, literacy organizations, teachers, parents and kids participate in read-a-thons, book drives and more.
