Description

We hope that you will join us at our major fundraiser - The Founder’s Circle - this year celebrating the Harlem Renaissance. Proceeds from our second annual Founder’s Circle will support the Renaissance of the school’s library. Last year, thanks to a generous donation from the Howard/Jackson families, we were able to begin the development of the Louise Harris Howard 21st Century Learning Center. With your support we will see the realization of this important project to establish a library and technology center at the Amani Public Charter School.

The evening will prove to be a fun filled night of music, dance, food and drink celebrating the cultural movement known as The Harlem Renaissance. We hope you will join us to party like it’s the Roaring 20s!


Vision Statement for the Library -

The Louise Harris Howard 21st Century Learning Center will serve as the hub for unrestricted access to information in many formats and sources. The Norma Veronica Neita Howard Library, which is part of the Center, will provide a space for scholars to go to discover a love for reading. The Center will bring information and culture within the reach of all scholars at Amani, creating a more informed and engaged community.
