All proceeds from our bi-annual tag sales allow JLSN to continue their community projects throughout the year.
Since 1923, JLSN has been an active contributor to the community. Among the League’s valuable projects is Read 2 Succeed. Read 2 Succeed works to get more books into the hands of young readers and provide literacy-themed events to children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds within our service area. Rooted in the belief that by empowering children to read we can open them up a world of possibilities, JLSN has focused our efforts on three proven techniques:
- Reading aloud to children
- Making books, especially bilingual books, more accessible to children
- Helping parents be effective advocates for their child’s education
