What's New

National Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative, held annually on January 27th. This special day promotes families reading and doing other literacy-related activities together.  Take 15 minutes a day to learn with your family!  

The NWT Literacy Council encourages communities, schools, families and organizations to celebrate family literacy day in their own unique way. Many communities or schools celebrate the whole week by hosting several family literacy events.
