Family Literacy Day 2022

Family Literacy Day 2022 Theme:

Learning in the Great Outdoors

“Spending time in nature provides many benefits, not just for bodies, but for minds too. This year, get outside and exercise both your mind and body together as a family. You can make outdoor time fun family learning time all while enjoying the wonders of Canada’s Great Outdoors!”
