Allstate Readiness Series
Readiness Begins With Me™

About the Allstate Readiness Series

Middle Country Public Library has partnered with the Allstate Foundation since 2006 around the theme of Readiness Begins With Me™, initially to establish the Catastrophe Readiness Clearinghouse and website, with the mission of empowering individuals by providing information that leads to positive action in advance of a catastrophe.

The Allstate Readiness Series broadens the scope of the theme Readiness Begins With Me™, creating a year-long calendar of events sponsored by the Allstate Foundation and held at Middle Country Public Library – focusing on issues such as catastrophe readiness, teen safe driving, and financial empowerment for victims of domestic violence and others.
