Pacific Power Foundation has awarded a $1,000 grant to the Libraries Reading Outreach in Clatsop County program. This program provides outreach services to all youth in Clatsop County that are not served by a public library through collaborative work done by the three public libraries and five school districts in Clatsop County.
The Libraries ROCC program is a nonprofit that is currently supported by grants or in-kind support from Pacific Power Foundation, Georgia-Pacific Foundation, Clatsop County, Clatsop Cultural Coalition, the Oregon Community Foundation, the Seaside Public Library Foundation, the Astoria Oregon Library Foundation, Fibre Federal Credit Union, private donations from community members, and the Cities of Astoria, Seaside, and Warrenton.
The program supports the work of our schools and teachers through three main goals: a Library card in the hands of every child ages 0-19, A Countywide annual summer reading program, and courier services to help children return library materials. Libraries Reading Outreach in Clatsop County appreciates Pacific Power Foundation’s support of reading and literacy for all youth in Clatsop County regardless of their geographic location or socio-economic status. Any child residing in Clatsop County may sign up for a free library card at their closest public library.
