Charter #110778

In partnership with Ken Davison, MD. (retired anesthesiologist) and Storytime Crafts

ADSL's focus on wellness and academic success encourages healthy habits and choices for youth and their families. ADSL offers an alternative to risky behaviors where young people can excel in sports, build self esteem, develop leadership skills, and engage with positive role models and mentors. 

 "We are so excited to have a little library in our community! It brings a smile to our faces whenever we see young kids and their parents excitedly picking books out of the little library. It is  proving to be a valuable resource for families in our neighborhood who may not have access to other reading materials during this isolating time. Looking forward to increased activity at the "library" this year! " 

 

-- Candice D. Gartley, Executive Director, All Dorchester Sports & Leadership

"So proud of all your efforts during this hectic pandemic. Wonderful work. Appreciate being a small part of it."
