The Knoxville Public Library’s Summer Reading Program will come to an end tomorrow. Families are reminded to have their children’s reading logs turned in so their children can receive prizes for the amount of reading they accomplished over the summer. Children’s Librarian Holly Shelford tells KNIA/KRLS News it has been proven that having children read throughout the summer keeps their reading level up so they are not slipping behind when they head back to school. Shelford says she believes families in Knoxville also feel the reading program is important based off the amount of kids that participate. Over 518 people took part in the program which began on June 3rd.
