Project Team

SYR-LFL is a collaboration between Syracuse University and members of the Near Westside community. Through a series of workshop, community residents, design students and library science students have come together to discuss literacy, books and the importance of connecting with our neighbors. The project is sponsored by Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies, College of Visual and Performing Arts, and Office of Community Engagement and Economic Development.
