February is African Heritage Month. Public libraries across the province will be celebrating with programs and collections that highlight African heritage and the contributions made to the culture of Nova Scotia.
Family Literacy Day is held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.
Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development. Even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.
