Austin Public Library Community Engagement VISTA
The Austin Public Library Community Engagement VISTA will work to break the cycle of poverty in Austin’s historically disadvantaged Oak Springs neighborhood by working with the Willie Mae Kirk branch library to develop community-based and community-driven programming around health and wellness services, programs, and materials based on the identified needs and interests of its community. The programming will seek to raise awareness of authoritative health information, engage residents in learning opportunities, and advance literacy skills necessary to navigate information systems.
