Family Literacy Center
Read Together, Grow Together
COME VISIT US at the Family Literacy Center!
Our mission is to empower children, young adults, and their families to enhance the quality of their lives through education, support, advocacy, and opportunity. We accomplish this through appropriate neighborhood-based services.
Our vision is to put books into the hands of children to encourage them and their parents to read. We accomplish this by offering a friendly, community environment where kids and their parents can come to check out books, do homework, play games, and work on crafts.
Our history began when the FLC opened its doors in 2002. The FLC was originally funded by a Rhode Island Education Reading Grant. After the grant expired, the Lincoln School Department and the Town of Lincoln began funding the program. As of July 2010, the Center became funded solely by the Town of Lincoln and fundraising efforts. We now have over 12,000 books on our shelves, and more than 2300 members.
