Family Literacy Day is coming up again, scheduled for two days, Friday January 27th and Saturday, January 28th.
“This year, we are cooperating with the Rail Jam, and while the Rail Jam is going on outside and all those people are very, very cold, we’re going to have a multicultural reading in the mall. We’re going to have a decorated area and we’re going to have stories told in the different languages that represent Kitimat,” said Liz MacDonald.
On January 28th, there will be a free skate from 2-4 and children will have hot Chocolate and Cookies made by M.O.M.’s Cuisine, they will also be able to go to the literacy program and get a free book for kids under the age of 12.
Grade fours have also been doing a passport to learning and they will have their name put into a draw for an I-Pod. There is also a jelly bean jar at the Kitimat Public Library on Saturday as a part of the event.
The reason for scaling back this year’s event was due to the number of people who attended. The volunteers were overwhelmed by this number.
