The mission of the Free Library is to advance learning, guide learning and inspire curiosity. Its vision is to build an enlightened community dedicated to lifelong learning. We are using our DML5 grant to support a teen and youth maker program in 5 neighborhood locations in some of Philadelphia's most underserved communities. Our project, Connected Messages, unites all five sites in describing their communities both in words and in an interactive physical and digital mural.
