The 23rd Annual Family Literacy Day (FLD) is Thursday, January 27th, 2022. The theme for this year’s Family Literacy Day is Learning in the Great Outdoors. Families are encouraged to get outside and take 15 minutes of fun spending time in nature, which provides many benefits for our minds as well as our bodies.
Be sure to check out ABC Life Literacy Canada’s Website for information and resources about Family Literacy Day. There is even a virtual event you can sign up for with Barbara Reid!
This year, LCNB is hosting an online contest to celebrate! We are giving away 3 $50 gift cards to the local bookstore of the winner’s choice. Simply snap a picture of you and your family enjoying an outdoor activity, and post it to Facebook with #OutsideWithLCNB. The contest will be running until February 14th. Whether you’re playing in the snow, skating, reading or anything else outside, we want to see your winter fun!
We are also proud to partner with two New Brunswick organizations: the Moncton Public Library and the Early Childhood Family Resource Centre of Westmorland-Albert. Both organizations will be receiving a grant from LCNB to help them provide their Family Literacy Day activities.
The Moncton Public Library will be posting an online storytime and craft with New Brunswick author and illustrator, Nathasha Pilotte! This event will be posted to their Facebook page on January 27th and will be available to watch until February 3rd. No registration is required and the video will be in both English and French.

The Early Childhood Family Resource Centre of Westmorland-Albert is giving away free literacy day kits to the first 20 families who register! This event is for families who are registered with the center. Call them at 506-384-7874 for more details.
We are glad to help New Brunswick organizations like these, and look forward to seeing all of the amazing Family Literacy Day activities that will be taking place across the province!
