Interior Savings Unplug and Play Family Literacy Week

Kamloops – Interior Savings Unplug and Play Family Literacy week takes place from Jan. 24 to 31. The community of Kamloops is invited to come out and enjoy the many free, fun events and activities hosted by organizations in support of national Family Literacy Day®.

Activities include free baking, belly dancing, Xploresportz, Blazers and Books, dancing robots, ice tower swim, Simple Science, Seniors Tea, skating, story-time, games night, Mother Goose swim and more.

The week wraps up with ABC Family Literacy Day, hosted by the partners of Kamloops Early Language and Literacy Initiative (KELLI) at the Henry Grube Education Centre on Saturday, Jan. 31 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The morning is full of free activities for the whole family. Each child receives a free book from the Heap the Honda Children’s Book Drive.

During Interior Savings Unplug and Play Family Literacy Week, more than 5,000 young students will try to reduce their recreational screen time by taking the Interior Savings Unplug and Play School Challenge. This year, youth and adults are challenged to try the Digital Detox Challenge. It’s tough for children to unplug when we are plugged in!
