I am a Teacher in a Chicago Public Library in a community of great need. My position is funded by the Chicago Public Library Foundation. Everyday I tutor children of every race, creed and nationality in the library. Many of these children come from single parent homes and from homes where the parents do not speak or write fluent English. These children and their parents depend on the Teacher in the Library to help them succeed at school. Today, a woman asked me to help both her 6th grade son because she never graduated high school . Without the Foundation's support I could not succeed in teaching both to read and write fluently and cogently. The Foundation is geat organization of dedicated individuals who truly believe in education and helping the less fortunate succeed. We owe a great deal of gratituted to CPLF. Please lend your support. Terry D.

The CPLF takes an active role in not only the library, but also the community in order to both engage current users of the library, but also to educate the community about library programming. The Foundation has embraced new forms of technology to stay relevant within the lives of library users and is always on the look out for new ways to connect with library patrons. CPLF is a worthy organization.

Thousands of Chicago children each year discover the excitement of reading, the boundless vistas opened by encouraged curiosity, and the adventure of sharing discoveries with others through the programs of the Chicago Public Library Foundation. These activities transform the lives of children and young people in all corners of the city by bringing them into the main library in downtown Chicago and more than 45 neighborhood branch libraries for programs such as One Book, One Chicago; Summer Reading for Kids; Teachers in the Library; and Computer Tutors. The skills learned and the horizons discovered stay with the children all their lives, making it possible for them to continue learning and discovering, to excel in their studies and social skills, and to master the discipline and focus needed in the profession they eventually choose. Thousands of these children would not have this early 'leg-up' without the Chicago Public Library Foundation's creative and far-reaching work.
