Get involved with Reading Town Canada - May 2-9 2015

In May 2015, the National Reading Campaign, in partnership with the PEI Literacy Alliance and the Confederation Centre Public Library, will turn Charlottetown into Reading Town Canada.  The official sponsor for the one-week festival is TD Bank Group.  The Community Foundation of PEI is a sponsor as well.

What is Reading Town?
For one week, Islanders will weave reading into every aspect of their lives through a series of highly publicized, exciting, fun events. Imagine having a poem delivered with your pizza, having a chance to hear your favourite author read, taking a "story walk” through a local park, having a blind date with a book, or finding a tiny lending library at the end of your street.

Want to get involved? 
Everyone is encouraged to organize an event or activity for Reading Town. The possibilities are endless! If you need help with ideas, you can contact the PEI Literacy Alliance.

By hosting a Reading Town Canada event/activity, your name will be entered into a draw for a chance to win $200 and a $50 gift certificate to The Bookmark. And...the PEI Literacy Alliance will give 200 children’s books to the winner’s choice of daycare, school, or organization. 

Contest deadline is April 10, 2015. Events can be still be registered after April 10, but they will not be eligible for this contest.

 Please remember to: 

  • Register your event or activity for a chance to win a great prize by April 10, 2015. 
  • Hold your event or activity during Reading Town week (May 2-9, 2015)
  • Take photos during your event and email them to: holly@nationalreadingcampaign.caPhotos will be displayed on the Reading Town Canada website.

Register for a chance to win! Register your event with the National Campaign online at: http://www.nationalreadingcampaign.ca/post-your-reading-town-event/ 

Please note: We will only accept one entry per event/activity. 

The draw will be held on May 2 during the opening celebration.
