It’s Always Nice to Get a ‘Thank You’!

As a 109-year-old organization dedicated to civic leadership and developing the potential of individual women as leaders in their communities, the Junior Leagues are usually the ones giving out the awards. So the decision by Action for Children North Carolina to honor all 11 Junior Leagues in North Carolina with the prestigious 2010 N.C. Children’s Lifetime Legacy Award was a pleasant surprise.

Is Dolly Parton a Member of The Junior League?

While the singer-songwriter, author, actress and philanthropist is not a member of The Junior League, she is playing a vital role in an important project by the Junior League of Birmingham to foster literacy through an innovative program that puts books in the hands of kids and their parents at what many educators say is the best time: before they go to school and before they even attempt to learn how to read.

The JLB Imagination Library, in partnership with the Dollywood Foundation, has made the 60-volume Dolly Parton Imagination Library available to all children under the age of 5 in Jefferson County, Alabama. Each month, from birth to age 5, every child registered will receive a high-quality, age appropriate book in the mail free of charge.
