Project poster

This is a collaborative project between the Mount Vernon City Library and the Mount Vernon High School Mariachi Program to provide Folklórico (Mexican Folk) dance instruction and create a community literacy campaign. The central focus of this project is to engage with teens and Latinos who are currently underserved by the library and connect them to the library through outreach and innovative programming. This project promotes library resources to teens and within the school community and reinforces the school district's mission to be facilitators of lifelong learning by connecting students to the public library.
