Seven Fun Ways to Celebrate National Family Literacy Month

Updated: Jan 2, 2023

November is National Family Literacy Month
November is National Family Literacy Month

In 1994, the National Family Literacy Center (NFLC) worked with Congress to declare November 1 as National Family Literacy Day. While one celebratory day is great, why not celebrate the entire month? (And for us, the entire year). NFLC is inviting everyone to celebrate family literacy for the entire month of November and we're excited to participate.

"Once you learn to read you will be forever free." Frederick Douglass

Here are Seven Fun Ways to Celebrate Family Literacy:

1. Listen to audio books in the car. 2. Read just 15 mins each day. 3. Keep books visible around the house. 4. Make regular visits to your local library. 5. Start a book swap at your child's school. 6. Donate books to organizations that serve families. 7. Find books that have been made into movies. Read the book, then watch the movie during family movie night.

"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family." ~Kofi Annan
