JLN hosted a very successful All Booked Up, a free literacy-based event for children and families, on February 29, 2020 at Tusculum Elementary School in South Nashville. All Booked Up engages young readers through literacy workshops, imagination stations, character meet-and-greets with Belle and the VU Commodore, and read-alouds.
Attendees received access to literacy support program information, literacy program registrations, and fun activities. Children who attended the event received a free bag to fill with books to add to or start their very own library.
In Spring 2021, the All Booked Up event will not occur due to the coronavirus pandemic, however volunteers will deliver books to Metro Nashville Public Schools for distribution to students.
And thank you to our imagination station participants: Adventure Science Center, Sleep Tight Nashville, The Hermitage, Metro Police, Nashville Zoo, Nashville Public Library, Country Music Hall of Fame, Pi Beta Phi, StorieChild, Smile Spotters, Imagination Library, Frist Art Museum, Children’s Theatre, and Mr. Bond the Science Guy!
