CLARKS SUMMIT — The Abington Community Library launched its IDEAL PARTNERS campaign to highlight and increase awareness of local partnerships cultivated throughout the year.

This campaign focuses on the five Pennsylvania Library Association’s (PaLA) 21st Century Literacies Initiative, PA Forward, conceived to give voice to what the library community already knows: with the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.

The initiative focuses on five literacies: basic, civic and social, health, information and financial. These will be the focus of library programming and services over the next five months.

Posters representing the five literacies showcasing the library’s “IDEAL PARTNERS” will be on display at the library. The original photography was done by Guy Cali, of Guy Cali and Associates, who donated his time, talents and materials.

This month, IDEAL PARTNERS introduces the Health Literacy Partners, which include Geisinger Blood Center and Geisinger Health Plan.

For more information about current health literacy programs, contact the Abington Community Library at 570-587-3440.
