Cobb libraries have hosted Vision To Learn visits during School Breaks since mid-2018 with more than 400 children receiving free glasses. The visits were the first for Vision To Learn in Cobb County and at a Georgia Public Library.
Collective Impact in Action: The upcoming Vision To Learn events are part of Cobb County Public Libraries’ efforts to collaborate with organizations offering “bright spots” identified by Learn4Life (L4L), the Metro Atlanta Regional Education Partnership, for improving “cradle to career” success.
L4L is powered by the Metro Atlanta Chamber, the Atlanta Regional Commission, the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, and the United Way of Greater Atlanta together with metro school districts, non-profits, businesses, and communities. www.l4lmetroatlanta.org
