New York Public Library Deploys Cityspan Provider
Cityspan recently launched a custom version of Cityspan Provider for the New York Public Library’s out-of-school time programs. Located in neighborhood libraries throughout the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island, the Library’s programs provide literacy tutoring, credit recovery, homework help and mentorship opportunities to more than 3,000 youth annually. Motivated by a desire to reach even more students living in economically disadvantaged areas, the Library asked Cityspan to develop a solution to track participation and measure outcomes for their Bridge Up, Enrichment Zones, Innovation Labs and Literacy Leaders programs. Using Cityspan Provider to analyze attendance trends and monitor student performance over time the Library plans to scale their programs to serve 10,000 youth by 2018.
