Programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York State Legislature. Programs are also supported, in part, by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

We are also grateful to our members, all those who support our First Novel Fête, and the corporations and individuals who have donated books to our library collection, our bookstore, and our KidsRead/KidsWrite program.
