Family Reading Night: A How to Guide
Rehmer, Julie
Library Media Connection, v25 n7 p16-17 Apr-May 2007
A family reading night is the ideal way to introduce the library media center and actively involve parents in their child's reading success. This event is an opportunity to explain how a reading program works and provide parents with strategies to encourage further reading at home. Parents can sit down with their children and read in the library, browse the library shelves with their children, learn how to select appropriate books for their child's reading level, and participate in a gently used book exchange. This article provides ways on how to promote family reading night. Careful planning and consideration lead to a successful family reading night that will suit the needs of all of the families. Parents and students will be excited about reading when the evening has ended, and parents will leave with a better understanding of how a school's reading program works and how they are an integral part of their child's reading success.
