Literacy continues through the holidays

Here's something to do with the little ones this holiday break.

A family writing contest is once again being held to honour Family Literacy Day in January. Families can pick up their writing kits now from the Agassiz Library.

Families must write and illustrate a children's story, and return their submission to the library by December 31.

Entries will be judged by a community panel and the winner or winners will be honoured at a special event on January 27.

If you would like to share your love of literacy with the community in another way, the Community Access to Literacy and Learning, through Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, is looking for volunteer tutors. Training and support will be provided. For more information on tutoring, email CALL_Agassiz@live.ca or call Debbie at 604-796-2585.
