Today marks the official launch of Family Literacy Week.

From Jan. 21 to Jan. 27, Best Start partner organizations across the city will be offering a full schedule of activities for kids and families to encourage them to read. National Family Literacy Day is celebrated Jan. 27.

The Greater Sudbury Emergent Literacy Committee brings together all interested stakeholders to promote emergent literacy development among children aged zero to six in Greater Sudbury.

The committee is made up of representatives of Best Start Hubs, Wordplay Preschool Speech and Language, all four school boards, Child Care Resources, the Greater Sudbury Public Library, the City of Greater Sudbury and local pediatricians.

A schedule of family literacy activities in English and French organized by Best Start partner agencies throughout the city has been compiled by the Emergent Literacy Committee and is available at www.sudburybeststart.ca.

Many schools will also be organizing special activities for their students and their families.

Please call Karen Renout, chair of the Emergent Literacy Committee, at 705-522-6655.
