Talk with Me/Parle-Moi program holding family activity for Literacy

The Miramichi Talk with Me/Parle Moi program and the Newcastle Public Library are celebrating Family Literacy Day. On Tuesday, January 27, 2009, 3-5 p.m, the Newcastle Public Library will host literacy focused songs, story time, rhymes and activities for the whole family. A colouring contest will also be held during this time and judged at 4:30pm, with winners announced at 5pm.

Families are invited to return at 7pm to the Newcastle Public Library for a Slumber Party with Librarian Catherine Reid. From 7pm-8pm there will be sleeping bag races and pass the pillow games. Families will also be able to create a star mobile and finish off the evening with a snack and story.

Parle Moi/Talk with Me is a program of the Extra Mural Program’s Early Language Services. The program’s mandate is working with families who have children aged birth to 5 years old. The program and the Newcastle Public Library are partners in literacy, encouraging children and families to read together.
