We came into existence and continue because of the generous funding and support of the Central New York Community Foundation.
Our leading programs are:
MCRA is the county’s ONLY free, one-on-one, ABE, ESL ADULT EDUCATION program. If an adult wants to better themselves and improve job skills, all they have to do is contact the Program Director, Tara Truett at firstname.lastname@example.org. A tutor and material will be found; the nearest library will provide the space and meetings will be individualized to suit the client.
The Imagination Library provides FREE BOOKS for children from birth to five. High quality, age appropriate books are mailed to the child’s home EVERY MONTH. This has been the LCMC NY’s successful initiative for every part of the county. Our “MADISON MODEL” uses the local public library to service the area of their local school district. All you have to do is fill out the registration form available on our site (click here) or at your local public library (in Munnsville, Madison, Brookfield and South Otselic–go to the school’s main office.) Join forces with the Literacy Coalition of Madison County NY to help improve the lives of all Madison County citizens through literacy services for all ages.

Another major supporter has been the Gorman Foundation which, beside numerous grants has generously provided office space in their new state of the art Gorman Foundation Community Center. Finally, a steady supporter for many years has been Hamilton’s William R. McNeice III Foundation.
