2014 Bring A Book to Work Week

All businesses and organizations in the North Okanagan-Shuswap are invited to take part in the second annual “Bring a Book to Work Week”, which will take place from January 27 to February 2, 2014.

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!
