APLA has expressed support for the National Reading Campaign. View the letter of support.
The National Reading Campaign is about creating a reading strategy for Canada. It is about engaging Canadians in exploring what a Canadian reading plan would look like, and what we would expect the key outcomes to be. The campaign plans to incorporate and promote reading as a central feature of 21st century Canadian citizenship. For more information please visit the website: http://nationalreadingcampaign.ca
In November of this year, the campaign will launch a pair of national contests, one aimed at adults and one at children. APLA will help with distribution of kits of information about the NRC, contest materials, and suggestions for how to engage our communities in the Campaign. Stay tuned!
