In Buffalo, NY, partners at the Buffalo & Erie County Library are taking great strides to empower the local community, to encourage lifelong learning through accessible educational alternatives, and to provide meaningful cultural experiences for the entire community. With support from the Southwest Airlines Heart of the Community grant, they will transform the library’s front yard – an “orphaned” space in the heart of Buffalo’s downtown – into the “Reading Park,” which will be an extension of the Library and the centerpiece of the city’s emerging Literary Corridor. By “bringing the inside out,” the Library will offer more programming and opportunities for neighborhood connections, helping it to become an even greater asset to the entire city.
