The Family Reading project is mainly focused on families with children from the age of two to eight. The project promotes quality leisure time, the opportunity for conversation, playing, learning, and entertainment within the family circle. One of the most important goals of the project is to raise children into readers because that will bring them benefits for a lifetime.
Librarians from Kranj City Library have prepared lists of quality literature for three age levels and a special list with recommendations for parents.
To participate in the Family Reading Project families fill in a form with the data of the participating family members and then receive a family reading booklet. The family borrows books from the list for the appropriate age level in the nearest library. After they read the selected book they talk about the content and answer the questions. At the end they evaluate books and fill in the attached coupons. At the next visit to the library they receive a small prize.
The project starts in the Fall and ends at the beginning of the Summer when we organize final event with which we celebrate all the good stories we read through the year.
In the future literacy will play a very important role in the development of local community, region and finally even country as a whole.
