The Claiborne County Library’s Summer Reading Program, “Build A Better World” finished up on July 18th with a huge party in the library yard with door prizes, face painting, games, bounce house and more. Children who enrolled participated in multiple activities and enjoyed all the entertainment provided by the library. The UT Extension Office also hosted “Adventures in the Kitchen” in the children’s room. This program was a nutrition program with nutritional facts, exercise, and hands-on cooking for the kids and was presented by Jackie Payne and Abby Ferguson who had a wonderful crowd every time.

As part of the “Build a Better World” theme, the library chose to try and help “Build a Better Community” by taking donations for three different non-profit organizations in the county. As children and adults read a book and brought in a donation they were entered into a weekly door prize drawing. Many items were donated and we appreciate everyone who helped out.

Programming will continue throughout the year at the library with Lego Club, Storytime, and much more. A future program for homeschoolers will be coming soon. For more information on these programs, call the library at 423.626.5414 or visit the library’s Facebook page.

The library would like to thank the following sponsors for making this program a wonderful success: SRK Tennessee, Inc., Minton Family Dental, Rowland Veterinary Services, DeRoyal Industries, The Sign Center, Home Federal Bank, Enrichment Federal Credit Union, Dollar General Store, Gibson Hall Homemakers Club, Dogwood Homemakers Club, Tazewell Chapter 232 O.E.S., Hair, Etc., Pizza Inn, Old Town Grill, El Mariachi Mexican Restaurant, Red Door American and Chinese Restaurant, Unique Palace, Dollywood, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, WonderWorks, Smokies Stadium, Wilderness of the Smokies, Zoo Knoxville, The Muse Knoxville, Claiborne County Fair Association, Town of New Tazewell Pool, Big Air Inflatables, Taylor and Makayla DeBusk, Matt Noe, Katie and Beth Rednour, Zach Amos, Leanne Walker, Karen Loope, and everyone else that helped out at each program. Without you this program would not be possible.

 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Sandy, Teresa, and Jami
