Family Literacy Day at the Kimberley Public Library
At the Kimberley Public Library, we’re celebrating Family Literacy Day (Jan. 27) all week with a host of engaging programs and activities for families to enjoy. The focus this year is exploring cultural diversity with the theme ‘Celebrate your Heritage.’
The annual event aims to encourage families to read together and take time to do a learning activity with children every day.
Families are invited to visit the Kimberley Library and sign up for a library card. Library membership is free to all permanent residents, from newborns to seniors. Proof of residency is required.
The fun kicks off with Children’s ‘Around the World’ Storytime on Wednesday (Jan. 25) at 10:15 a.m. for preschoolers, followed by the hugely popular Lego Club at 3:15 p.m. for age five and older where kids are invited to get endlessly creative with buckets of Lego bricks.
On Thursday, the library presents a special travel presentation for kids only, age nine and up. Guest presenter Stephen Interisano transports us to the continent of Antarctica on a three-week boat expedition, with jaw dropping footage of hundreds of thousands of penguins (pictured above), icebergs and endless wildlife. Popsicles are included in this travel package!
Due to popularity, registration is required for this event.
A great week of events wraps up on Friday with a Family Book Swap. The library invites the community to donate a book, then take a book from the book swap cart, plus grab a take home “Celebrate Your Heritage’ pack for families to enjoy at home.
