Celebrate Family Literacy at Your Local Library Throughout the Month of January

HALTON HILLS, ON/ January 4, 2022 – January 27 is National Family Literacy Day and once again, Halton Hills Public Library (HHPL) invites you to celebrate the importance of reading and literacy throughout the entire month.


HHPL encourages you to have loads of fun, read or play together often, and help raise literacy awareness. By reading to children and engaging in fun literacy building activities regularly, adults actively help children improve their skills. Family literacy activities help strengthen the relationship between family members which, encourages lifelong learning. Family literacy focusses on parents, grandparents, and other family members to improve the reading, comprehension and writing skills of the whole family.

Share the love of literacy!


Help HHPL spread the word throughout Halton Hills! To show your love of reading and learning, HHPL would like to feature you reading with a family member, child or grandchild. Share your photo with HHPL on social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram) using the hashtag #FamilyLiteracyDay. HHPL will share, reshare and retweet your post.
