Northern Reading Program

Originating in 1992, the Northern Reading Program promotes literacy for community members throughout the North accompanied by its mascot, Wandering Willie. Among many other activities, a reading challenge is issued to see which community is the "Readingest Community in Northern Saskatchewan". This year's Northern Reading Program theme is "Reduce, Reuse, RECYCLE!".
