All businesses and organizations in the North Okanagan-Shuswap are invited to take part in the first annual “Bring a Book to Work Week” which will take place from January 21st to 27th, 2013. As part of Unplug & Play Family Literacy Week, the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) is encouraging all businesses and organizations to promote literacy in the workplace. Some ideas for “Bring a Book to Work Week” include:
- Throughout the week, encourage staff members to bring a book or magazine to work to read during break times
- Organize a used book exchange for staff members
- Start an informal workplace book club
- Announce a “Drop Everything And Read” (D.E.A.R.) at some point during the work day
If your business plans to participate in “Bring a Book to Work Week”, send LASS a message on the LASS facebook page (www.facebook.com/LiteracyAllianceoftheShuswap) and your organization will automatically be entered into a draw for a free Family Pack of books from Playfort Publishing and LASS. Happy reading!
