Thank You For Your Support!

Members of our community who care about promoting literacy and critical thinking skills to children are as generous as they are numerous.

Our community raised over $3,400 to finance the after school pilot program with Armstrong Elementary School. These funds will provide for equipment and activities that promote science, technology, literacy, and most importantly the unconstrained excitement of satisfying a child's curious mind! This first of its kind program in the Greater Rochester area will help school-aged children develop a sense of wonder and a lifelong love of learning that will help prevent the "summer slide."

We look forward to sharing the excitement and success of this innovative program with the individuals who donated funds, our supportive community members, parents, grandparents, and caregivers. Once Blastoff! to Literacy is in full effect we will invite the community, our benefactors, and the news media to attend an open house so that they can share in the excitement of an vibrant public library as it produces future innovators, leaders, artists, and educators.

Thank you again for your support and patronage. Your support changes lives.
