We are in the middle of the 15th annual Unplug and Play Week, which encourages families to unplug from their screens and spend time together doing various activities.

The week began this past Saturday with ABC Family Literacy Day at the Henry Grube Education Centre in North Kamloops.

This year’s Unplug and Play Week theme is Make It Count, with events running through Saturday, Jan. 28.

Throughout Literacy Week, families can expect to receive a list featuring a series of activities hosted by community partners sent home with schools for the week.

This year’s Unplug and Play event is sponsored by Interior Savings, with Literacy in Kamloops, School District 73, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, City of Kamloops, the Child Care Resource Referral Network and Kamloops
YMCA-YWCA helping to organize events.

A full list of daily activities — which include downtown storywalks, cross-country skiing, a family genealogy session and a comedy magic show — can be found online at
