Join us throughout January as we celebrate families sharing the joy of reading and literacy together. Just taking 15 minutes a day to read or do a learning activity with children can improve their literacy skills dramatically.
Find a Family Literacy Month program at your branch. Check with the branch to find out if tickets or advance registration are required for admission.
Drop by your local branch and ask for a Family Literacy bingo card or download (PDF) and print a copy. Every bingo card poses nine different literacy activities. Finish each activity, and then submit your completed bingo card to your branch by February 11 for a chance to win one of four Family Fun prize packs. For an extra chance to win, enter our #FamilyLiteracyBingo Social Media Contest.
Growing a Reader Blog
Our children's staff suggest tips and activities for your family that help build a love of reading. Join the discussion!
Our staff have recommended stories the whole family will enjoy, plus some helpful books for parents that will help encourage a child's lifelong love of reading.
Family Literacy Month is supported by the Friends of Toronto Public Library, South Chapter. We gratefully acknowledge their support.
