All Booked Up
Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders
The Junior League of Nashville (JLN) was thrilled to partner with the Nashville Public Library to present All Booked Up 2017. This FREE event was held on May 20, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
JLN reached out to young minds ranging from Kindergarten to 4th grade throughout the Nashville community. All Booked Up was not only a fun event for inspiring young readers, but the event also served as a registration drive for the Nashville Public Library’s Summer Reading Challenge.
All Booked Up engaged young readers through literacy workshops, imagination stations, character meet-and-greets, and Feature Readers. Attendees had access to literacy support program information, literacy program registrations and more. The best part of the event – kids left with a bag full of books to start their very own home library. Children gain a new enthusiasm for reading after attending All Booked Up!
All Booked Up is an event to support the JLN issue-based community focus on literacy. Through the establishment of strategic partnerships, JLN works to achieve literacy competency across the cradle-to-career continuum by raising public awareness of existing achievement gaps and by ensuring that at-risk, low-income, and new American children and families have appropriate access to education support programs and materials.
The 95th Anniversary Gala celebrating the Junior League of Nashville was held Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Belle Meade Country Club. The Gala included a sit-down dinner and a later party, as well as a silent auction and live music.
All proceeds from the Gala will directly support the mission of the Junior League of Nashville. Over the course of its history, JLN has worked diligently with community partners to develop the potential of women to advocate for issues in our community.
