This was the second year that HCLN took on a family literacy project in Spryfield and it has been a great success. Veronica McNeil and Avril Lewis developed workshops on sharing books with preschoolers that were offered in partnership with community service providers in Spryfield. The Learning to Go workshop uses a book bag filled with goodies including family literacy tips, picture books and craft supplies to encourage parents to teach their children about the joys of reading and learning games. A Make a Book workshop that gave parents and toddlers a chance to work together on a book about them was also a big hit.
