Read About It!:Goals

Frank McCourt's 'Tis: A Memoir is one of the books featured in the American Life Stories package.

Read About It! has two goals:

  • Reach audiences new to book discussion programs. Read About It! involves people who typically do not attend cultural programs or have limited access to them-individuals from a large variety of communities and backgrounds.
  • Help public libraries increase their value as community learning centers. The programs boost the ability of libraries to conduct humanities programs. They also improve libraries' marketing and promotional skills, enabling them to publicize their contributions to lifelong learning.

The libraries chosen for the 2010-11 program demonstrate a clear desire to achieve these goals. View a list of fall 2010 and spring 2011 participating libraries.
