WEST VIRGINIA (LOOTPRESS) – West Virginia Family Read Week is set for November 13th-20th and is the perfect time for families to visit their local library and read a book together. WVLC and Public Libraries across the state are encouraging families to use this week to celebrate the benefits of reading.
According to the WV Library Commission, 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 of improved academic success.
Reading together also promotes family bonding. In the WV 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 by clicking here.
Locally, Fayette County Public Libraries are promoting WV Family Read Week by waiving all overdue fines on all library materials if returned between November 13th-19th.
