FAYETTE COUNTY – The Fayette County Public Library system will join county libraries around the state in celebrating West Virginia Family Reading Week, scheduled for Nov. 17-23.
During the week, libraries throughout the state encourage parents and caregivers to read with their children. Reading aloud stimulates speech and language development for young children. Older children can see the benefits with improved academic success.
Reading together also promotes family bonding. In the West Virginia Family Read Week Guidebook, there are many activities for parents to spark interest and excitement for reading. The WV Family Read Week Guidebook is available for download at https://librarycommission.wv.gov/Librarian/Documents/WVFRW%202019%20Guidebook%20-%20Final.pdf
Along with these activities, families can visit any branch of the Fayette County Public Library to learn how to become a “Book Fiend” and participate in other activities to celebrate the week.
To learn more about West Virginia Family Read Week, the guidebook and more, visit your local branch of the Fayette County Public Library.
