As you may know, in May 2015, the National Reading Campaign, in partnership with the PEI Literacy Alliance and the Confederation Centre Public Library, will turn Charlottetown into Reading Town Canada.
For one week, Islanders will weave reading into every aspect of their lives through a series of highly publicized, exciting, fun events. Imagine having a poem delivered with your pizza, having a chance to hear your favourite author read, taking a “story walk” through a local park, having a blind date with a book, or finding a tiny lending library at the end of your street.
Want to get involved?
Everyone is encouraged to get involved by organizing an event or activity for Reading Town. The possibilities are endless! If you need help with ideas, you can contact the PEI Literacy Alliance.
By hosting a Reading Town Canada event, your name will be entered into a draw for a chance to win $200 and a $50 gift certificate to The Bookmark. The PEI Literacy Alliance will give 200 children’s books to the winner’s choice of daycare, school, or organization.
Please remember to:
