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.
Giv’er Miramichi is about “What’s up, what’s new, what’s happening”. We are focused on building people up, supporting one another and celebrating our successes.
