Early Literacy Awareness Week
August 10-16, 2014
Each August, we celebrate Early Literacy Awareness Week in conjunction with National Health Center Week. This is a time to encourage families to foster a love of reading in our youngest children and prepare them for success in school. Health centers around the region help us celebrate with children’s book readings by special guests to highlight the importance of books in the lives of young children.
We host literacy events for children and families periodically throughout the year. Check again soon for updates on future events!
Stay tuned for details about our upcoming Annual Benefit & Auction, planned for this Spring. As always, the event will include an evening of fine dining, literacy champion award presentations, and a fabulous silent auction. Please send any inquiries about the event to email@example.com.
Each year, we hold meetings and conferences on current topics in the field of early literacy. Registration is free and open to the public.
