Cocke County C-5 Hosting Summer Reading Program
The Cocke County Cradle to Career Coalition…known as C-5…has teamed up with four local libraries to challenge kids in Cocke County to read at least 20 minutes every day for 100 days this summer. They are calling their 2022 Summer Reading Program “Oceans of Possibilities”. Children can read to someone, with someone, or be read to for just 20 minutes a day to meet the challenge. Libraries will feature ocean-themed programming and unique guests on different days and times! That ranges from treasure chest crafts to visits from both furry and scaly critters. Each library’s summer program will kick off with a pizza party. Beginning June 1, Marie Ellison Memorial Library will have a program every Wednesday at 1:00 PM until July 6. Stokely Memorial Library will begin Thursday, June 2 at 11:00 AM and have weekly programs through June 30. Cosby Community Library will host programs on Fridays at 4:00 PM beginning June 3 through June 24, and the Parrottsville Community Library will have programming on Mondays at 3:00 PM beginning June 6 through June 27.
