Join us for a StoryWalk®, where individual pages of a storybook, mounted on sign posts, are placed outdoors in a circuit. Children follow the narrative by visiting each sign post in sequence. Rain or shine; please dress appropriately. Drop-in. These programs are part of the Festival of Family Literacy. Everyone welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult.

Book Recommendations by Teens for Teens
Teens are invited to drop by their local branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library throughout Family Literacy Week (January 24-29) to share their book recommendations and see what other teens are reading. We’ll supply the post-its and pens and teens can share their picks.

Free Writing Resources (for kids!)
Local charity Story Studio has created StorySheets, designed to help your child plan and think through a story. You can print them out and fill them in, or download the fillable PDF versions and complete them on a computer. (You’ll also want a notebook or laptop to actually write your story, using your StorySheets to guide you.)
Enter a Writing Contest (for kids!)
Local charity Story Studio challenges you to write your own creative flash fiction story of 500 words about the greatest snow day of all! Will you stay in, cozied up in the most epic fort you’ve ever built? Or adventure into the depths of nearby snow caves? Tell us all about how your creative characters will spend the day, filling your story with vivid descriptions, and interesting plot twists! Entry is free, and the contest is open to ages 5-13. Prizes will be awarded for the top two stories selected by our esteemed judges for ages 5-9 and 10-13, and stories will be shared on storystudio.ca!
