From games, skates and books, Chase will be celebrating literacy week in a multitude of ways this year.

The Chase Literacy Program is hosting its first Family Games Night of the new year at Haldane Elementary School.

While the students of Chase are taking part in the their own reading programs, others in the community have also stepped in to help raise awareness and fill some bookshelves. This free event will be held on Jan. 21, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gym.

Haldane PAC will be running a concession with all proceeds going to Haldane.

There will be a drop-off box for donations of books for The Chase Bright Red Bookshelf, so parents are asked to go through their home libraries and see what they can pass on.

A free family skate and activities will be taking place on Saturday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon. Those attending are asked to bring a book for donation and help fill the penalty box.
