  Family Literacy Day® is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27th  to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.

Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development, improving a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.

You will need: A working email, a computer, smartphone, or tablet with a microphone and a webcam.

Photo Procedure: Library staff may take photos and videos to be used for promotional purposes by the library. If you would prefer not to have your picture taken, please speak to a library staff member. Participants of online programs and events are asked to not take screenshots and/or record programs.

All Richmond Public Library in-person programs are on hold until February 16, 2022. Visit the library’s programs and events calendar,, for information about all of our online programs. We look forward to welcoming you back to in-person programs soon.
