You can celebrate Family Literacy Day at the City Centre branch of Coquitlam Public Library on Thursday, Jan. 27.
From 3:30 to 5 p.m., families with children in kindergarten and up are invited to visit for a lively afternoon of board games such as Monopoly, Sorry, Game of Life (Star Wars edition), Settlers of Catan and many more. Games that encourage literacy and numeracy - such as board games, card games and word games - are considered a great way for parents and children to practise their literacy skills and have fun.
Registration is not required for this free program - just drop in. And snacks will be provided.
For more information, call 604 927-3561, Ext. 4 or visit www.library.coquitlam.bc.ca.
The City Centre branch is located at 3001 Burlington Dr., at Coquitlam city hall.
