By Sybil White Taylor, M.Ed., NBCT

The Mansfield Branch of the National Association of University Women (NAUW) will hold its Annual Literacy Festival on Monday, November 21, 2022, at the Mansfield Housing Authority Center at 2:00 P.M. The goal of this event is to celebrate and encourage everyone to love Reading.  Come and Celebrate The Day! There will be Free Books, Storytelling, Snacks, Treats, a Bounce House, and Cake Walk.

Young Author, Ms. Kennedy Williams, a Mansfield native, will be the featured guest.  Kennedy is a student at Evangel High School in Shreveport, LA., and a promising author of children’s books.  She will be sharing her experiences with the children.

Mrs. Darron Spencer, Children’s Librarian, at DeSoto Parish Library in Mansfield, will make a presentation and give information on the services available at the library and how to get a library card.

NAUW is a service organization that seeks to provide activities to enrich the lives of children and adults in Mansfield and the surrounding area. Literacy, Education, and Health are just some of the initiatives that the NAUW organization promotes each year. It partners with other agencies and organizations to achieve these goals. In keeping with the Literacy initiative, NAUW has also established a Little Free Library in the Mansfield Housing Project neighborhood, where children can have access to free books. NAUW issues scholarships each year to deserving students to  assist them in furthering their education.
