Hancock Literacy is able to hold fun, free Family Literacy Nights (FLN) at our local schools. During these engaging events, children get to participate in literacy related activities with their adult(s). We show the importance of literacy while in an exciting, family-friendly event.

The purpose of FLNs are:

  • to provide information to parents about how they can help their children develop literacy skills at home.

  • introduce parents/caregivers to literacy standards.

  • provide/model games and activities to teach literacy concepts.

  • have fun!

Since 2015, we have had over 3,300 participants attend our Family Literacy Nights and have given out 1,800 books. 

Our 2018-19 theme is "Reading is my Superpower!"
