The Library Foundation Offers Inspiration

Educating our children is a tremendously valuable investment we can make in the future of our community, our country, and our planet.

Most of our clients know about Arnerich Massena’s successful I AM Learning Partnership, but additionally, for more than 15 years, we have worked with The Library Foundation, an impressive local non-profit that helps Multnomah County Library create innovative literacy and learning programs that reach thousands of at-risk children across our community, including kids at Irvington School.

Like the I AM Learning Partnership, these library programs place a high priority on reaching kids at risk. Librarians are targeting kids from birth through high school, with the goal of creating experiences that can be life-changing. Over the last year, the organization launched an innovative program – the Rockwood Library Makerspace – in a neighborhood where kids and families are really struggling. The program builds science, technology, engineering, math, and arts skills and connects kids with mentors who work to inspire them to stay engaged in school. This short video features some of the kids whose futures have been altered by this new program. We are inspired by all The Library Foundation is making possible and we are pleased to support them.
