Celebrate Literacy At Library

National Family Literacy Day takes place January 27, 2018 and Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) is celebrating with a video launch, book giveaways, and local events!

Visit FVRL’s YouTube page (www.youtube.com/FraserValleyLibrary) to meet library customers Will, Ray, and Carter. Learn about the positive impact of the library’s programs and services on their young family. Customers can also enter the book giveaways in-library or online, by visiting www.fvrl.ca until January 31.

“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.

For more information, please visit www.fvrl.ca or your favourite FVRL location. Connect with FVRL online 24/7 through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
