We have been asked for several years to change NWT Literacy Week from September as this is a very busy time in many NWT communities. Earlier this year, we decided to host NWT Literacy Week during the third week of April each year. NWT Literacy Week 2020 will take place April 19-25. This year’s theme is “Celebrating 30 Years of the NWT Literacy Council”.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and physical distancing measures, we are all going to have to celebrate a little differently this year. We won’t be able to host Family Literacy Nights or have Elder story times. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t still celebrate and share literacy with each other. As people are doing everywhere, we are going virtual and hope to connect with everyone in new ways.
We have many different virtual activities planned for the week, and hope that community members join us in hosting their own virtual events. Here are some of our highlights:
