The Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacy Initiative, PA Forward, was conceived to give voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nations are also recognizing:
With the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel education and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.
Libraries have moved far beyond just being book repositories. They are agile institutions serving real-life needs. Libraries can be key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in PA by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic literacy, information literacy, civic and social literacy, health literacy and financial literacy.
As a Gold Star library, the Free Library of New Hope and Solebury has demonstrated its commitment to providing services and programs that meet all five of the PA Forward Literacies. Below is a list of community resources that take you “beyond the book” to access the information you are looking for. As always, if you need additional resources or assistance, please contact us at 215-862-2330.
