Family Literacy Day is observed annually on January 27 to encourage Canadian families to spend time every day enjoying a learning activity together. The theme for 2012 is Our Learning Journey.
This guide has been developed to help organizers plan and host a Family Literacy Day event. It contains information about the history of the day, activity ideas for groups of all sizes, and suggestions for fundraising.
There is also a detailed planning checklist that outlines everything that needs to be done, including forming a committee; looking for potential partners; deciding on a budget; scouting locations; inviting special guests; and getting media coverage. The authors have included sample letters organizers can send to potential partners, guests, local officials, and the media.
