November 1st is National Family Literacy Day! As a mother of two girls, I can’t stress the importance of getting your children to love books! In a world that is technology driven there’s something to be said for curling up with a good book. Or even getting the family together at bed time to read a book together. And that what’s today is all about.

Started in 1994, today is suppose to focus on special events and actives that are centered around how important family literacy programs are.  It also kicks off National Literacy Month. Many events are held at schools, libraries, and literacy organizations through out the month of November.

Luckily for us we have two great library groups with a ton of local branches. Both the Rockford Public Library and North Suburban Library District are great resources for getting your family to read more. Plus they’re always holding different family friendly events that center around books.

Celebrate National Family Literacy Day by stopping by your local library branch and finding a new book for you and your family to read. Or pull out that family favorite and re-read it together for the 100th time. And remember to use the #FamilyLiteracyDay on your social media.
