Welcome to the South Island Literacy website, a place where you can find information about local literacy programs, resources & support.
Family Literacy Day® is a national awareness initiative held annually on January 27 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.
