CAP was founded in 1990 in response to a community-wide desire to strengthen and develop the County’s arts and cultural community. Many York sectors came together to engage in a community cultural assessment that would describe how a new arts council would assist and support the arts. After an exhaustive, inclusive 18-month study, CAP was launched as a not-for-profit agency that would serve the public by providing services to the arts in the County.

In collaboration with the New York State Council on the Arts’ Literature Program, The DUC/Poulin Project distributes the work of hundreds of contemporary writers and poets published by New York State independent publishers, free-of-charge, to alternative libraries throughout the state. The project helps to support the independent publishers by introducing their books to a new and broader audience, while at the same time helping to diversify library collections. Each participating publisher donates a few titles to the DUC/Poulin Project, which then distributes them free-of-charge to alternative libraries such as youth and senior centers, juvenile and adult correctional facilities, and community libraries. In 2004, the DUC/Poulin Project distributed 3375 titles to approximately 70 different reading centers across the state of New York. Because the DUC/Poulin Project sends books to a variety of alternative libraries, the population who benefits from the project is broad and varied. The project places a special interest on serving typically underserved communities, such as youth and senior centers, juvenile and adult correctional facilities, and community libraries in disability learning centers, transitional housing, and rehabilitation centers. Therefore, our target audiences are at-risk-youths, seniors, occupants of correctional facilities, and individuals who make use of their local community centers.
