Junior League of Bristol uses Little Free Libraries to aid new Literacy Campaign

June 30, 2018

Thanks to participation in an innovative program promoting literacy, the Junior League of Bristol has joined with the Bristol, Tennessee, city schools and members of a local Boy Scout to get more books in the hands of potential readers.

Known as the Little Free Library project, the program promotes a love of books and reading by getting written works into the hands of as many readers as possible.

Focus on Community


"Since it's inception in 1901, there have been many misconceptions about the Junior League. And okay, some of them have been true at points in the organization's history, but almost all of them are silly​ at this date and time.

So let's chat about what the Junior League actually does and why you might consider joining or supporting it."

Junior League Food Drive Benefits Second Harvest, Feeding America Southwest Virginia

March 1, 2019

KINGSPORT - The Junior Leagues of Kingsport, Bristol, and Johnson city will hold their 29th annual food drive at local Food City locations Saturday to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee and Feeding America Southwest Virginia. 



The Junior League of Bristol, in conjunction with the Bristol, VA Parks & Recreation Department has approved our community project for the 2018-2019 League Year - a sensory board at Sugar Hollow Park in Bristol, VA. In previous years, playground equipment has been donated by the Junior League of Bristol at Sugar Hollow Park, and the addition of a sensory board and panels not only provides safe and stimulating play for children with special needs, but appeals to children of all ages.

We are excited to begin working on construction of this project with our anticipated completion date scheduled for Spring/Summer 2019.
