After a vote by the YL membership, we’re excited to announce that the funds raised at this year’s Toast will support the Lifelong Learning umbrella of programming at the Library, including:

  • Adult Literacy Services, providing one-on-one English-language tutoring and workshops for adults who need to improve their English literacy skills;
  • Full STEAM Ahead, a series of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math workshops for all ages; and
  • Cybernauts, in which trained technology support staff are available at 37 branch libraries to help patrons develop their digital skills.
