This year, close to 400 JLW volunteers will donate their time to the event, participating in tasks including staffing book-signing lines, assisting with book sales, and handing out prizes to children alongside librarians from across the country.
The Junior League of Washington (JLW) today announced the opening of its 2017-2018 grant application period for programs and projects in the Washington DC, area. Interested organizations are invited to submit a Letter of Intent no later than September 7, 2017.
