Outreach Librarians

Outreach Librarians is a non-profit organization that promotes creative learning through literature.  We have dedicated ourselves to improving the lives of minority and disadvantaged youths, particularly those living in historically impoverished areas. Outreach promotes literacy and library utilization through the development of various programs that focus on creative writing, puppetry, poetry, and computer science. Early literacy changes minds and lives forever, and it is our mission to effect such change in as many children and families as possible.

Outreach Librarians' project entitled, "Creative Learning through the Arts," is based on an established oral tradition that has been used successfully over time to develop children's imagination and creativity through art forms such as storytelling, puppetry, visual aids, and creative writing.
