Junior Women's Committee of 100

Founded in 1970, the Junior Women’s Committee of 100 is an invitation-only group of local women dedicated to supporting the Children’s Department of O’Neal Library.

Each year the JWC provides hundreds of volunteer hours for the Children’s Department and puts on the Summer Kick-Off Reading Carnival and Thomas Hughes Brinkley Memorial Fun Run in May.

Since 1970, the JWC has donated over $500,000 to the Children’s Department. The JWC is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Please direct any questions regarding the JWC, including membership inquiries, to

2023 Summer Reading Kick-Off Carnival &
Thomas Hughes Brinkley Memorial Fun Run

Our annual summer reading fundraising kick-off event is back!

The afternoon’s events begin at 3 p.m. with the Thomas Hughes Brinkley Memorial Fun Run. Children and their grownups are invited to walk, run, bike, scoot, skate and stroll the one-mile course that starts in front of the library and runs through the adjacent neighborhood.

The carnival runs from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and will feature a train ride, face painting, game booths, a rock-climbing wall, and a bouncy house.

$30 Wristbands – which come with a T-shirt, while supplies last, and allow kids to participate in all carnival activities – will be available at the O’Neal Library starting in May. Patrons can also buy wristbands and individual activity tickets at the carnival. (All proceeds go to the Children's Dept.)
