Families of Waterloo Region - Let's Read!

Let's Read is a family literacy initiative in partnership with  Idea Exchange, Kitchener Public Library, Our Place Family Resource and Early Years Centre, Region of Waterloo Library, Waterloo Public Library, and the YMCA Ontario Early Years Centre. Together we work to get the families of Waterloo Region reading - reading the same book, reading together as a family, and reading together as a community.

Each year, Let’s Read launched a book at Word on the Street in September. Starting in 2016, we will launch at Kidspark in August. Until Family Literacy Day in January, we encourage families to read that book together. Programs, contests, and author visits are held at libraries, and other partner locations over the months. While reading together is its own reward, there are often prizes to be won, and activities to participate in, which enhance the experience of reading the Let’s Read book.

Literacy is important for the whole family. Children who are read to and who see their family reading demonstrate improved reading skills. Make literacy a family project, and let us help.
