With the end of every adventure, begins another…
Introducing the Lifelong Learner Literacy Program
Net proceeds from the BookEnds event will be used to kick off the first year of the program, and we need your support to continue this historic effort into 2017.
You can visit our Literacy Giving page to learn how to aid in reaching our youngest readers and their families in all areas of the community through the Lifelong Learner Literacy Program.
Lisa Unger’s Thoughts on BookEnds
Libraries are magical
With your support in 2015 our Library Foundation provided over $141,000 in support to our county public library system.
Your support has helped the Library continue to be an award-winning innovative, customer sensitive community center for young and old alike. More people than ever before are coming to Library programs and using Library facilities and resources.
Yet the challenge of outreaching to the underserved and the general community remains.
Continuing in 2016 the Library is committed to building on its success and expanding its wonderful literacy and summer reading programs for youth. We hope you will continue to support the Library Foundation as we work to expand the number of Florida Library Youth reading programs, help the Library purchase more literacy kits, and provide funds for additional exciting programs and resources.
