Worthington Noon Lions Love to Share the Gift of Reading


The Worthington Noon Lions (WNL) have been part of the Worthington Community for 45 plus years. We are a chapter of Lions Club International (LCI).  LCI started in 1917 in Oakbrook, IL. Today there are over 1.4 million members in over 200 countries with a total of 46,000 clubs.  LCI is an international, secular, non-political service organization. LCI has five main focuses: Vision, Pediatric Cancer, Hunger Relief, Environment and Diabetes.

The Four Centennial Service Challenge areas are Hunger, Youth, Vision ad Environment. The Worthington Libraries Summer Reading Program is our Centennial Service Project which leaves a Living Legacy to our children. The sponsorship gives children a foundation in reading that will help them learn, grow and succeed. Being able to read is empowering and builds confidence.

We are proud to be a sponsor of the Worthington Libraries Summer Reading Program. WNL has been the sole supporter of the Daycare, Preschool and Head Start Summer Outreach Reading Program since 2014. In 2017, 1,215 books were received by this program’s children.

Our donations from people throughout the Community assists us to support reading. Thank you to those who have supported the WNL.

Worthington has many opportunities, to be of service and hands on service, that all positively affect the people of our community.


“The more you read,

the more you know.

The more you know,

the smarter you grow.

The smarter you grow,

the stronger your voice,

when speaking your mind

or making your choice.”

(National Library Week Poem)


The Lions  Motto is “We Serve.”


Lions Clubs International Global Causes

Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to bring hope where it’s needed most.

Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world.

That’s why we’re uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.
