Partnering with the community for the love of literacy

LoveOfLiteracyThis year marks the 20th anniversary of Halton’s For the Love of Literacy conference – an important milestone in the history of an event that helps to support those who teach our youngest community members to develop a love of reading.

HelenKellerQuoteHalton Region plays an important role as a quality resource and partner that actively works to meet the needs of our communities. Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” It’s this attitude of working together to enhance the wellbeing and future of all our residents that makes Halton such a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.

Not only do so many groups in the community partner to bring The Love of Literacy conference together, the event is unique because it welcomes such a wide group of people to learn how to support the next generation. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, early childhood educator, librarian or someone who loves to instill a love of reading in children, everyone is invited to join us for this special event.

I’m proud of Halton’s role in helping to facilitate events that help make a real difference in our community. I look forward to working together so we can continue to make Halton a great place to live, work, retire and raise a family.
