Junior League of Springfield to host free Literacy Fair – October 12th

The Junior League of Springfield (JLS) invites area children and their families to participate in our 2013 Literacy Fair, “Set Sail!”, on Saturday, October 12, 2013, from 10 am to 2 pm in the Carnegie Room at Lincoln Library’s Main Branch (326 South 7th Street).

Children of all ages are encouraged to attend and explore this year’s sailing theme (in honor of Columbus Day weekend) while engaging in fun literacy activities. This event will include books, crafts, games, and water activity tips. This popular annual event is free and open to the public.

Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. Since 1939, JLS has contributed over one million dollars and one million volunteer service hours to the Springfield area community.
