Reading in the Rain

A sea of umbrellas filled parks and gardens. The rain never stops us. LINC makes reading irresistible. Over 50 families gathered at St. James Park to join Victor Ramirez and his daughter, Iratze for bilingual storytime. An active Very Involved Parent (VIP), Victor is a trained community literacy ambassador. LINC’s VIP program has become

increasingly popular, and parents, like Victor have developed quite a following. Rain or shine, families are ready to read, and LINC’s VIPs don’t disappoint. Our VIPs help us to make reading highly visible in the community, and leverage their linguistic assets to make literacy accessible in other languages.
