Tri-County Literacy Center is pleased to announce that they are the latest recipient from the Janice Cuddahee Fund's Tutor Support Project, an activity supported by the Janice Cuddahee Fund (JCF). JCF's current project awards online tutor training workshops to deserving literacy programs, supporting them as they train volunteers to work with adult learners.
Roseann Anzalone, the Executive Director of the Tri-County Literacy Center sees this award as a way to build capacity in their newly-formed program, allowing them to partner with other community organizations: "With this award I am feeling quite a bit less reticent about our ability to keep up with the requests that we will be facing as we work together with these other organizations. I cannot thank you and the LNY Board enough for your support as we grow this new organization and start impacting our neighbor's lives."
What a great way to honor Janice's legacy!

GLENS FALLS NY – Tri-County Literacy Center is excited to announce that they have received a grant targeted at increasing services to learners based in Washington County. Roseann Anzalone, Executive Director of Tri-County Literacy Center stated, "We are very grateful for the generosity of the Board members of the J.M. McDonald Foundation. We know that there is a large need for our services in Washington County and these funds will allow us to better serve those individuals."
According to the most recent study completed by the National Center for Education Statistics 19% of the Washington County NY population has difficulty understanding print materials, 30% have issues with basic math.
GLENS FALLS NY – Tri-County Literacy Center is excited to announce that they have received a Library of Congress Surplus Book Donation facilitated through Congressman Paul Tonko’s office to help support learners residing in Saratoga, Warren, and Washington Counties.
The Library of Congress Surplus Book Program, as stated on Congressman Tonko’s website, “donates surplus books to educational institutions, public agencies, and nonprofit tax-exempt agencies with the purpose of building library collections, not to raise funds for institutions or organizations.”
According to Executive Director, Roseann Anzalone, “Each of our learners comes to us with a totally different set of needs and learning issues. Having a variety of sources that we can pull from to help them gain the knowledge they need to increase their literacy skills, pass the GED, learn English as a new language or pass the citizenship exam is vital to our program’s success. We are grateful to Congressman Tonko for understanding that need and for taking time out of his complex schedule to speak to us one-on-one to learn more about our work.”
Board President Marilyn Bien stated, " TLC is very appreciative of the interest and support from Congressman Tonko and his staff. As we talked about at our roundtable,
growing adult literacy has positive impacts in so many ways for our North Country communities."
According to the most recent study completed by the National Center for Education Statistics:
Board member Bob Dingman stated that, “While it would have been easy for Congressman Tonko to simply have the books delivered, his visit and his questions at the roundtable discussion clearly illustrated his desire to determine that this donation was truly going to help those for whom it was intended. His visit and the donation was much appreciated!”
