Cobourg library celebrated Family Literacy Day
Around 30 preschool children listened to stories during a Family Literacy Day celebration at the Cobourg Public Library.

The library celebrated National Family Literacy Day on Jan. 27 with an hour-long event in the children's section. Children's entertainer Heather Whaley started the event with a lively song. Ms. Whaley later captured the children's attention with a dragon story and more songs. Cobourg Mayor Gil Brocanier read a story followed by storyteller Brian Marjoram.

Family Literacy Day started in 1999 in Canada. It is a day for families to come together for literacy building activities.
