The Okotoks Public Library is ready to celebrate literacy at the end of the month.

Family Literacy Day takes place Jan. 27, and on the 26 the library is hosting a variety of activities from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. for families.

Lara Grunow, assistant librarian at the Okotoks Public Library, says they have plenty planned around the day.

"On the 26 we're going to be hosting our Family Literacy Day event... you can come in and there will be some crafts, drop in story time, and some activities for parents to do with their kids."

Grunow says clients will also have a chance to reduce their overdue fees.

"During that day people can come in and read their fines away so they can come into the library, sit down and log their hours and we'll deduct some money off their overdue fines."

Family Literacy Day was started by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 to acknowledge the importance of reading and other literacy related activities.
