Literacy Week in Review | May 26

News and Events

Recap of an Eventful Night

Yesterday, we celebrated our Read Across America Celebration, which brought awareness to child brain development, the impact of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and the Kurt Karakul Literacy Award winner, Seeds of Literacy.

Thank you to our speakers and special guests, Mayor Justin Bibb, Dr. John Hutton, Emily Campbell, Coretta Daniel, Erin Deimling, and Kurt Karakul. A special thanks to everyone who attended and donated to The Literacy Cooperative, we were able to raise over $35,000 which will support many of our different initiatives, including Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Join us for our fifth annual event as we review the evolution of 2Gen in our community, learn about three programs that are serving families with a 2Gen approach, and network with colleagues. 2Gen approaches build family well-being by intentionally and simultaneously working with children and the adults in their lives together.

You can choose your networking topic based on the six components of a 2Gen whole family approach — early-childhood education, K-12, post-secondary and employment pathways, social capital, health, and economic assets.

This event has two format options. In-person (masks required) or virtual. Please register once and select the format you prefer.
