Family Literacy Week
Sunday January 22 - Saturday January 28
Celebrate Family Literacy Week January 22-28 at the Library! This year’s theme is “Make it Count.” From Decoda Literacy Solutions:
Numeracy is everywhere. Children start using math the moment they start exploring the world. Sorting, counting and measuring are ways of playing with math. Talking about math with children helps build a positive attitude towards math.
Come to one or more of our Family Literacy Week events at the Bowen Library:
We’ll also have a fun measuring activity for young ones in the Children’s Section (involves stuffies!)
