Family Literacy is defined as children, parents, grandparents and other family members engaging in literacy-based activities together. These activities can include, but are not limited to, reading, playing games and talking to each other.

Parents can help their child(ren) with school readiness and beyond by providing experiences that foster learning and growth.

There is always learning happening whether it’s at school, home or out in the community. Some community resources are Project READ, The Literacy Group and of course, Idea Exchange!

We have lots of resources here to help people on their literacy journey. Children, Teen and Adult programs run each season and provide many opportunities for learning. Of course, we have books to borrow but there is so much more! Board games to borrow, music to listen to, Literacy kits, Read the Rainbow kits, to name a few. Click here to find out what other kits are available to borrow at your local Idea Exchange location.

This year, Family Literacy Day Canada is officially on January 27th. 

On January 25th, 2020 we will be celebrating Family Literacy Day at our Queen’s Square location with a special Family Literacy Day Stay and Play. Drop in between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm for exciting and engaging activities for families to participate in and create your own fun activity to take home.
