Imagining the Future

The Future We’re Building—TogetherScreen Shot 2015-07-20 at 12.03.15 PM

These are just a few of the possibilities that could become a reality if we meet our Writing the Next Chapter goal.

• Rochester Memoir Project

Trained writers will help seniors write down their memories for the benefit of their families and the community.

• Expansions to 740 University

A new addition to the front of our building will house a café and bookstore, creating a more comfortable, engaging literary “third place” for Rochesterians.

• Visiting Writers Program

Some of this country’s greatest writers will be brought to Rochester to interact with local readers and writers over extended periods of time.

• Expanded Youth Programs

The young people of our community, no matter their economic circumstances, will have increased opportunities to discover the enormous difference reading and writing can make in their lives through our year-round programs.
