The Friends of the Albany Public Library have received a $500 grant from the Union Pacific Foundation to purchase books for a new Adult Learners Collection.
The Adult Learners Collection priorities include making program instruction more engaging and relevant by adapting curricula, often designed for children, to adult interests and needs, and assisting tutors. Funds donated to this program will purchase books specifically written for adult learners with varying literacy needs.
For more than 50 years, the Union Pacific Foundation has upheld the tradition of supporting community and civic programs. Grants to nonprofit organizations support community, cultural, and health and human services.
