2016 WV Family Reading Week – November 13-19
Below is the link to sign up if you are interested in participating in Read to Me Day on November 17th.
West Virginia Family Reading Week, November 13th to 19th, is dedicated to children and adults reading together. Research shows that reading with children prepares them for school and increases their vocabularies and listening skills. Reading with children also fosters closeness between child and caregiver, and it’s fun for the whole family.
West Virginia libraries often schedule a fine-free week during Family Reading Week to bring more people into the library.
Read to Me Day
A special part of Family Reading Week is Read to Me Day on November 17th, when volunteers in schools and libraries across the state read to children of all ages. Hundreds of West Virginia schools and libraries take part. Some of the most popular readers in schools are members of local law enforcement.
The Library Commission urges all schools and libraries to participate in Family Reading Week events.
