Drop-in Reading Day & Book Giveaway

Drop-in Reading Day & Book Giveaway

Join the Knoxville Education Foundation for a drop-in Reading Day of this year’s book for One Book Read City! Excerpts from the book will be read throughout the day along with a book giveaway. Participate in the city-wide One Book Scavenger Hunt while you are here. Look for this year’s book announcement on the Knox Education Foundation website at https://www.knoxed.org/one-book-read-city/  

One Book Read City is a true collaborative effort that unites businesses, nonprofits, and schools. In partnership with Knox County Schools and Knox County Government, One Book Read City creates a unified dialogue surrounding literacy and increases students’ exposure to books. Getting the same book into the hands of nearly 30,000 kids in all Knox County Elementary Schools happens with great support from the community. Knox Education Foundation serves many important roles in making the two weeks of activities and events a success! 

Books will be given out first-come, first-served while supplies last.


This project is supported in part by federal award number 21.027 awarded to Knox County by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Arts & Culture Alliance, and by the federal award number SLFRP5534 awarded to the State of Tennessee by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
