Upcoming Projects

The Washington Animal Rescue League, Child reading to dog at the Washington Animal Rescue League founded in 1914, is not just a friend of animals, WARL also reaches out to the community through educational programs. In their Humane Education Program, children learn about being kind, compassionate, and responsible to animals, and improve their reading and writing skills by reading to dogs and writing creatively about their experience.

Discovery Theater Discovery Theater Logo is a children's theater at the Smithsonian Institution that also tours to schools in the MD, DC and VA area. They present live educational performances on a variety of topics including art, music, world cultures, and science. Their original plays bring life to African-American inventors, entrepeneurs, athletes, and civil rights activists, and celebrate and ask hard questions about culture in plays such as African Roots, Latino Soul and American Rice.

The Nora Roberts Foundation is happy to support their newest endeavor, a series of plays based on the Tools of the Mind concepts, now being implemented in DC Public Schools.

The Shepherdstown Public Library Shepherdstown Public Library is located in the heart of Shepherdstown and offers many children's programs. The library is limited in size, and these programs are often held off-site. In addition, the library is not handicapped-accessible.

The New Library Project will build a new library to serve the needs of the growing community on a reclaimed brownfield close to town.
