Information on Kids You Can Count on

Kids Count Datacenter

How Kids Add Up

The Kids Count Datacenter, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, collects information about kids and their welfare, and makes it easy to find. It breaks down reports nationally, by state, by county, and by city. Crime, health, education, financial status, and many more topics are there for the exploring. Have real information when headlines leave you scratching your head.

New Location for Literacy

A few folks have already popped by to check out our new digs, and we want to encourage to all of our tutors, students, and various volunteers to stop by our new building now that we’re open! We have moved and our materials collection is all set up and ready to be browsed! We also have a self-check machine available for those who want to check out any literacy items while they’re here.

Work It Out by Rebecca Howard

Everyone has experienced a bad job or two.  Some of us have experienced soul-sucking, hope-killing, brain-numbing, and bad with a capital “b” jobs.  I only have to think to the late 1990s when I worked for a small advertising company that produced on hold messages.  “Your business is important to us.  Please stay on the line and someone will be with you momentarily.”  Yeah, that stuff.  I was the person who wrote that.  Sorry.
