On Read Across America Day, with Congressman John Katko and Head
Start children, we announced annual grants to support family literacy programming and outreach to our Imagination Library families.
Syracuse selected as a Community Pacesetter by the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading! This national honor recognizes our efforts to ensure more students are reading on grade-level by the end of third grade.

Our mission is to build upon our heritage and collectively support community initiatives that raise literacy levels across the lifespan in Onondaga County. Solving the problem of low literacy gets at the root of educational, social and economic issues in a way that no single subject does.

It’s time for a collective approach to literacy solutions and, ultimately, measurable systemic change. Working together we can truly honor our legacy of literacy and, in turn, create a thriving community of life-long learners. Your input and suggestions are most welcome!
