National Family Literacy Month Events Announced For Putnam and St. Johns Counties
Events, Families

National Family Literacy Month (NFLM) events are set for this November in Putnam & St. Johns Counties. National Family Literacy Month is a time to recognize the important role that family support plays in the success of reading and literacy. Children who are read to and learn to read from an early age are more likely to become better learners and succeed in other areas of their education.

In celebration of National Family Literacy Month (NFLM), a proclamation will be read at the Putnam and St. Johns County Commissioner’s offices to declare National Family Literacy Month in the counties. The St. Johns proclamation reading will be held Tuesday morning November 2, at 9:00 a.m. at the County Commissioner’s office located at 500 San Sebastian, St. Augustine. The Putnam proclamation will be held Tuesday November 9, at 8:30 a.m. at the new Government building located at 2509 Crill Ave. in Palatka.
