In collaboration with Austin Public Library (Ruiz Branch) and Volunteers In Communities Tutoring Our Responsible Youth (VICTORY), the literacy partnership Libre con Libros has secured more than 300 books for distribution at the Ruiz Branch on Monday afternoon, April 30, 2012.
Youth enrolled in the program VICTORY and ranging from newborn to young adult will receive complimentary books (while supplies last) to build home libraries and foster the joy of reading and achievement. Storytelling and writing opportunities will be scheduled to advance the program El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day).
Help us spread bookjoy and the power and pleasure of world languages and literacies! ¡Adelante!
