Love, Love Letters for Literacy, from start to finish these packets are helping to bring school students, libraries and families with young children, together in Camden County for the cause of Literacy. The Love Letters packets are a great addition to our Family Literacy Days in Camden County. The packets not only inspired volunteerism by local high school students, who created the packets, it also gave us an additional activity to engage parents with their children at the events. The Camden County Workforce Development Board, Literacy Committee, planned our Family Literacy events with the intent of encouraging adults with language or literacy barriers to interact with their children’s books and activities, thereby helping them to improve their own literacy and language skills. Other information about workforce and literacy programs are given to the parents along with free giveaways and take-home activities such as Love Letters packets!
