THE STORY:

The FLC was created to help parents learn how to transfer literacy activities to the home and to foster a learning relationship between parents and children outside the classroom. Our main goals:

1) Eliminate transportation barriers that interfere with parents participating in school sponsored literacy activites
2) Establish a site in the community for outreach services and family support
3) Encourage family book discussions
4) Use the Arts as a medium for literacy learning

The FLC opened its doors in 2002. The FLC was originally funded by an RI Education Reading Grant. After the grant expired, the Lincoln School Department and the Town of Lincoln began funding to the program. As of 2009, the Center shifted to primarily funding by the Town of Lincoln and Title 1 programs.

We now have over 10,000 books on our shelves, and more than 500 members.
