Families stopped by their local Fraser Valley Regional Library branches in Langley to mark Family Literacy Day on Saturday.
In Langley, the Fort branch had a used book sale to mark National Family Literacy Day which was Jan. 27.
Activity stations were set up around the Langley City branch featuring storytelling, bookmark making, a literacy scavenger hunt and more.
Until Jan. 31, the public can enter draws in FVRL branches or online at fvrl.ca for book giveaways.
“FVRL is proud to celebrate and support Family Literacy Day. We know that taking time every day to learn as a family is crucial to a child’s development and provides an opportunity for adults to keep their skills sharp too. Daily family learning time can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically,” says Heather Scoular, FVRL’s director of Customer Experience.
The FVRL network if 15 member municipalities and regional districts is the largest public library system in British Columbia, with 25 community libraries serving almost 700,000 people in its service area.
