Read for 15

Public libraries across Muskoka are reaching out to encourage our communities to read for 15 minutes on Friday, January 25, 2019 in celebration of Family Literacy Day.

“Literacy is truly the foundation for the development of skills in other areas” shares Huntsville Public Library Youth Services Librarian Amber McNair. “#Readfor15 and Family Literacy Day encourages everyone to take a few minutes a day to read, either independently or together.” Read the full media release here.

Participation in the Read for 15 Challenge is easy. Simply read or read to a child or children any of the following types of materials:

  • Books: Fiction, non-fiction, audiobooks, picture books, graphic novels and more!
  • Newspapers and magazines.
  • Online sources: websites, social media or texts.

After you finish your 15 minutes let us know by either:

  • Tweeting with the hashtag #Readfor15Muskoka and tagging our Twitter handle (@HuntsvillePL).
  • Posting a picture using the hashtag #Readfor15Muskoka on Facebook and tagging us (@huntsvillelibrary).
  • Posting a picture using the hashtag #Readfor15Muskoka on Instagram and tagging us (@huntsvillepubliclibrary).
  • Visiting the library in person or by phone and we will add to the tally.
