Mission: The mission of the VLP is to promote literacy, cultural awareness, and lifelong learning through access for all ages to information, resources, and educational programs. The VLP’s vision is to be a model library, a leader in providing high-quality educational programs, enrichment opportunities, and informational resources in Charles Village and throughout Baltimore City. The VLP will strengthen the surrounding neighborhood by serving as an anchoring institution, a symbol of local pride, and a gathering place for a diverse community. We promote a learning-oriented culture that is friendly, welcoming, and supportive of the success and well-being of every person.
Results: In 2007, the Village Learning Place was named as one of the nation’s select 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) through the Maryland State Department of Education. This competitive, three-year federal grant has allowed us to launch a community-wide initiative, called Let’s Invest in Neighborhood Kids (LINK). In 2008, Charles Village was named one of the 10 Great Neighborhoods in America by the American Planning Association, which cited the neighborhood’s “strong and dedicated activist community, economic and social diversity, and memorable character” in its award. The VLP is proud to call Charles Village home and to partner with its neighbors in building and maintaining a strong community. In 2010, the VLP’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant was renewed for three more years, a recognition of outstanding growth since 2007 and a vote of confidence in our future. With this support, we are able to expand our LINK program to serve preschool and high school students, providing “cradle to gown” programs for our kids.
