We are looking to establish a little library for the adult population that focuses on trades, skill development and self help! We have many resources for the youth yet in most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods the adult population is not afforded the same attention. This effort is being introduced after countless missed opportunities to enhance the literary capacity of our adult population whom are in the home educating their children. In addition, our specific community in the Ward 7 district neighborhoods of Nannie-Helen Burroughs, Lincoln Heights and Clay-Terrace Housing, we have found that may adults have time and energy on their hands to build community gardens, start landscaping businesses and the like.... This project would spearhead efforts of entrepreneurship, empowerment through knowledge and build a sense of community pride.
