Manhattanville College Wins Prestigious Grant from ALA

Manhattanville College is one of ten libraries to receive a $5,000 grant under the American Library Association's (ALA) Libraries, Literacy and Gaming Initiative, funded by the Verizon Foundation.

The winning libraries will use these funds to develop and implement gaming and literacy programs that provide innovative gaming experiences for young people. As the only academic library to receive this grant, Manhattanville College's Library and the Manhattanville Advancement Program (MAP) will collaboratively develop an educational gaming program during a pre-freshman summer program to enrich the academic foundation of MAP students. This pioneering program will be the first of its kind at the college level to bring middle school students and college freshman together to foster academic success via educational gaming tools.
