Literacy the focus for Library event on Saturday

The Prince Rupert Public Library is looking to increase awareness for Literacy initiatives in the community, with the Sixth Avenue West library hosting a family event this Saturday afternoon in the Multipurpose Room.

The two hour event offers activities, giveaways and refreshments to celebrate Family Literacy, also providing some notes on the Take 20 program, which looks to make learning together part of the family experience each day.

The Day's events are free to the public and sponsored by Decoda Literacy Solutions, North Coast Literacy Now and the Prince Rupert Library.

Earlier this month the Library offered up a glimpse into the reading, listening and viewing habits for North Coast residents, posting the list of the ten most borrowed items of 2019.

Their findings highlight the favourites in Adult Fiction, Adult Graphic Novels, Adult Non-Fiction, Juvenile Fiction, Juvenile Graphic Novels, Talking Books and DVD's.

The full list is available here.

You can learn more about the range of programs available at the Prince Rupert Library from their Facebook page and website.
