Literacy Inc.’s community of the week is Staten Island. We are unique because we cater to five different neighborhoods throughout the North Shore of Staten Island. Those neighborhoods include Stapleton, St. George, Port Richmond, Mariners Harbor and West New Brighton. Every neighborhood has different needs and we are there to support them through their schools, libraries, community venues and more.
We want to acknowledge one of our most valued community partners on Staten Island, Barnes & Noble. Barnes & Noble has donated over 5,000 brand new books to us, keeping our mission alive and thriving. They continuously show us love and support by not only tangible donations, but also being present for author celebrations and fairs, providing even more resources to our parents. They have also partnered with us to host summer read alouds right in the store! Barnes & Noble is the only book store on Staten Island and it is vital to provide books to parents who may not be able to reach to the location and need to acquire books.
Thank you, Barnes & Noble for your continued support of LINC's Staten Island programs. Together we raise more little readers every day!
