The “Celebrate Literacy Award” recognizes organizations, institutions, and individuals that have made significant literacy contributions at the local, state, or provincial level to promote literacy worldwide.


Libraries, Ltd. has recently invested a portion of our assets in two foundations. We have opened a Reserve Fund in the Tucson-based Community Foundation of Southern Arizona to support our ongoing literacy projects. In addition, we have established an Endowment Fund in the Arizona Community Foundation, headquartered in Phoenix. The Endowment Fund is a permanent fund in memory and honor of our founder, Judy Goddard.
