Today marks the 50th International Literacy Day! How will you be celebrating? Perhaps it is more of a plan than a celebration for you. Whether you are an avid reader or someone who reads on a "need to know" basis, now is a good time to make some resolutions. Today can be the January 1st of literacy! A time to make some changes or set some goals. Lately my son and I have been reading a few pages of The BFG each night. No doubt he became intrigued after the movie was released last July. Normally I do all of the reading but I thought that it would be a nice change for us to take turns reading. Maybe you can try out some new reading tips or perhaps you can attend a new event at the library. From family storytimes to movie nights to book clubs, the library has something for everyone.

If a cozy night in is more to your liking, you can stream a classic film or documentary through our Criterion Collection. As for me? Well I have marked my calendar to attend The BFG puppet show at Runnymede branch on Oct 15. My son and I should be finished the book by then!

If you know someone who would like help improving their reading, writing or math skills, the library offers one-on-one tutoring for adults 16 or older.
