The Claiborne County Library’s Summer Reading Program, “Libraries Rock!” finished up on July 17th with a huge party at the library with prizes, face painting, games, bounce house and much more. Children who enrolled participated in lots of activities and enjoyed all the entertainment provided by the library. The UT Extension Office also provided a nutrition program with cooking and nutritional facts present by Jackie Payne. There were a total of 161 children enrolled and over 5, 000 books read.

The library continued the tradition that was started last year of taking donations during the summer for three local non-profit organizations. As children and adults read a book and brought in a donation they were entered into a weekly door prize drawing. Lots of items were donated and we are most appreciative.

Programming at the library will continue throughout the year with Lego Club, Story Time, Home School Group, and more. For additional 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 great success: SRK Tennessee, Inc., England Furniture, Home Federal Bank, Enrichment Federal Credit Union, Dollar General Store, Gibson Hall Homemakers Club, Pizza Inn, Old Town Grill, El Mariachi Mexican Restaurant, Gondolier, Haymaker Farms Restaurant, El Gallo Mexican Restaurant, Gato’s Tacos, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Red Door, Heavy’s Mobile, Home Town Cafe, McDonald’s, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, Dollywood, Knoxville Ice Bears, Ijam’s Nature Center, Titanic Museum, The Muse Knoxville, Rowdy Bear Mountain, WonderWorks, TopJump Trampoline Park, Tennessee Smokies Baseball, Claiborne County Fair Association, Town of New Tazewell Pool, Big Air Inflatables, Taylor and Makayla DeBusk, Matt Noe, Cassie Taylor, Brittany Cruz, Aaron Hardwick, Becky Gallagher, Daniel Rasnic, Leanne Walker, and everyone else that helped out at each program.
