November 11-17, 2018 is West Virginia Family Read Week. The West Virginia Library Commission, provider of state library information and services, promotes the week as way to improve academic success and family bonding.
According to numerous national studies, children who were read to frequently are generally more successful in the classroom:
Karen Goff, WVLC Executive Secretary, says, “Reading to children is a tried and true way to improve academic success. It also brings families closer together; and families that read together, explore, discover, and create together.”
The Library Commission encourages families to visit their local library and read a book together during West Virginia Family Read Week. To learn more on how to promote family reading, contact your local library.
