Pajama Party

Join us in celebrating our Annual Pajama Party, a CLC Fundraiser that has helped us build libraries and supply books to children across the globe for years.


The Pajama Party is CLC’s main fundraising effort of the year, and has always been a virtual event to stay home and read with a child. Through the years CLC has honored with its annual Pajama Party many special authors, educators, and philanthropists for their contributions to children’s literature and our organization. CLC’s first Pajama Party was held over 30 years ago and honored Dr. William Pressly, founding president of The Westminster Schools. Dr. Pressly allowed CLC’s founder Kemie Nix, then a reading specialist at the school, sabbatical to teach literature in the inner-city Atlanta Public Schools, and later at Mount Kenya Academy in Kenya. Read more of the founding of CLC and of Kemie’s adventures in teaching literature in her book: A Book Teacher for Every School: Featuring Mount Kenya Academy

Our 2021 Pajama Party will include an online auction of handmade items from Kenya. All of the proceeds from the auctions will be allocated for books and supplies for libraries and schools in Kenya.

The 2021 PJ Party Auction will be held from Nov 28 to Dec 4. Buyers in the Atlanta area may request a local pick-up or drop-off in lieu of item shipment.
