The Chester County Library has been selected as one of 16 public libraries nationwide to receive a $10,000 American Dream Literacy Initiative grant from the American Library Association (ALA) and Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The Chester County Library was selected through a competitive, peer-reviewed application process. Nearly 100 public libraries applied for the 16 available grants, according to the ALA Public Programs Office.
With this grant funding, the library will expand and update its literacy collection, offer free workbooks to currently enrolled CC-OIC students, establish a dedicated ESL kiosk with interactive learning features, and support English tutoring pairs in the library with new iPads and other technology.
