National Book Festival

Junior League of Washington Volunteers Support the Library of Congress’ National Book Festival for the 14th Consecutive Year

The 16th annual Library of Congress National Book Festival will take place Saturday, September 24, 2016, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from 9 a.m. – 10 p.m. 

Nearly 400 Junior League of Washington (JLW) volunteers will help make this year's National Book Festival a success – continuing our 14-year history with the festival. The poster for this year’s festival, which highlights JLW's involvement, was designed by illustrator Yuko Shimizu and explores the theme of using books as a passport to knowledge and discovery.
