Please recommend me some guides about building a modern, lightweight, easy-to-maintain website.

I have volunteered to create a general-information type website for a non-profit organization, and I would really like to do a good job.
The last website I built was when css was "the new thing", and it was built completely out of html/tables/containers/etc. Needless to say, that's no longer going to be adequate. Unfortunately, I've not kept up with what new technology/packages/etc. are out there these days in terms of web-programming.
What I would like is to read some books/articles/online guides about modern website building. I'm looking for something with breath and not necessarily a lot of depth, i.e. something that gives a light overview of a bunch of tools that are commonly used for modern day website building, so that they appear on my radar and I can search for more indepth reading should I need to. Also looking more for technical guides than design guides, but suggestions for those are welcome as well.
For the purpose of this question, please assume that I am programming-competent and relatively web-savvy.
