Literacy

Junior League of Pueblo is committed to promoting literacy in the community. This year we are excited to participated in the All Pueblo Reads event with the Pueblo City-County Library.

In addition, children participating in our Touch-a-Truck and Holiday with Heroes events receive free books from the League.  Since we adopted our Literacy mission, the League has given away more than 12,000 books in our community.

Junior League of Pueblo also participates in the Pueblo Chieftain’s Adopt-a-Class every year. Thirty copies of the Pueblo Chieftain for 30 weeks of the school year are donated to a Pueblo County classroom. The program provides teachers with curriculum that meets Colorado State Standards and uses the newspaper as a valuable teaching resource weekly in the classroom.
