Pyjamas n Books Party cover graphic

  1. Pick a night when there isn't another community event going on and open up your school library.
  2. Advertise the Party at least one week before the event. A Pyjamas N' Books party is a great activity for the whole family. Put posters up around the community, advertise on the local radio station, or green screen and hand out invitations at the school. Tell everyone about it! Posters and invitations are included in this package.
  3. Invite families to wear their pyjamas and come and read together. (People can come in their regular clothes too)
  4. Prepare snacks for the families that attend the event.
  5. Give out prizes to families that attend (Find sponsors in the community, contact the NWT Literacy Council for book prizes)
  6. Hand out family literacy tip sheets (included in this package) and information about community literacy programs for parents to take home.
  7. Ask the local paper to come to your event and do a story about Family Reading Night.
  8. Thank youf sponsors at your event.
