American Library Association
The American Dream Starts @ your library. For more than a century, public libraries have been a cornerstone of the American Dream, providing equal access to information of all kinds. In fact, libraries are among the first American institutions immigrants turn to for help in learning how to read, write, and speak English. Since January 2007, the American Library Association (ALA) has funded 164 libraries in 32 states. Each library received a onetime grant of $5,000 to add or improve literacy services to adult English language learners and their families. American Dream libraries expanded ESL collections, taught classes, hosted conversation circles, trained tutors, increased computer access, build community partnerships, and raised the library's visibility.This initiative is generously funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
