The Evolution of an Adolescent Literacy Program: A Foundation's Journey
Henriquez, Andres
Reading Research Quarterly, v40 n3 p376-380 Jul-Sep 2005
The Carnegie Corporation of New York is associated with the very foundations of literacy going back to the philanthropy of Andrew Carnegie himself and of the Corporation in its early years. Andrew Carnegie's legacy includes over 2,500 free public libraries that he saw as a link "bridging ignorance and education." In fact, Carnegie, the man, quickly became known as the "Patron Saint of Libraries" (Wall, 1970). This paper describes the Carnegie Corporation's current literacy agenda and how it has been shaped and framed by its reading initiatives over the last 93 years.
