Open libraries on Sundays

In this letter to the editor of the Edmonton Journal, I suggest that offering library programs on Sunday, when more families could attend than during the work week, would encourage childhood literacy. Supported by data from Oxford Learning, I make the case that devoting a few hours a week to fun, exciting learning activities can help reduce learning loss. I also tout the TD Summer Reading Club, an initiative that inspires children to spend more time reading and visiting their local libraries.
