Three-year-old Adele Ingram celebrated Family Literacy Day at the Port aux Basques library Thursday. The library invited children to bring their parents and colour pictures and listen to a story.

Adele Ingram just turned three, and she's a big fan of reading.

To celebrate Family Literacy Day, the Port aux Basques library invited children and their parents to drop in Thursday for some activities. Adele and a group of other children coloured pictures and listened to “Pigs Make Me Sneeze,” part of the Elephant and Piggie series by Mo Willems.
Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually Jan. 27.
The provincial government recognized the day and in a press release said it's important for families to participate in literacy-related activities. Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Dale Kirby said he hoped the day would help inspire families to learn together.
