It was a fun day of play at the Grimsby Library on Saturday, January 25 when we invited the community through our doors for our annual Phelps Homes Family Literacy Day!
About Family Literacy Day:
- Family Literacy Day focuses on parents, grandparents and other family members to improve the reading and writing skills of the whole family.
- By reading to children and engaging in fun literacy activities regularly, adults actively keep their own skills sharp and also help children improve their skills.
- Family literacy activities strengthen the relationship between family members which, in turn, encourages lifelong learning.
We had such a blast with everyone, thanks to all of our patrons and partners who made this event such a success. Activities by: Thanks to Niagara Children’s Centre, Grimsby’s FUN School of Music, Kinetic Elements Dance Studio, Therapy Tails Ontario, Pathstone Mental Health, Sparky The Fire Dog and the Grimsby Fire Department, Grimsby Public Art Gallery, Niagara Region Public Health, Niagara Region Police, Cultured Grimsby and new author Alayna Ffrench for joining us! We’d like to express our great gratitude as well to Phelps Homes Ltd. for their continued support of literacy events at the Library, we couldn’t do it all without you!
