Thank You!

The Claiborne County Library’s summer reading program, “On Your Mark, Get Set…Read!” finished up with a big party on July 26th with face painting, games, a bounce house and prizes. Children that were enrolled enjoyed lots of activities and entertainment. They also enjoyed the nutrition program provided by Jackie Payne and the UT Extension Office. There was a total of 126 children enrolled and over 5,000 books read!


The Library would like to thank the following sponsors for making this program a great success: DTR Tennessee, Inc., England, Inc., Home Federal Bank, Dollar General Store, First State Financial, Giles Industries, First Century Bank, Brenda & Earl Ingle, Gibson Hall Homemakers Club, Dogwood Homemakers Club, Tazewell Chapter 232 O.E.S., Pizza Inn, Food City, Claiborne County Fair Association, Wendy Killion and the New Tazewell City Pool, Dollywood, Taylor DeBusk, Karen Simpson, Taylor Bell, Matt Noe, Zach Amos, Leanne Walker, Big Air Inflatables, and everyone else that helped out with each program. Without you, this program would not be possible!
