Lets Read 20 Logo 62716

Let’s Read 20 is a community initiative developed in partnership with the McMinn County Education Foundation, United Way of McMinn/Meigs Counties, Athens City Schools, Etowah City Schools, and McMinn County Schools to inspire and encourage families to read together 20 minutes a day.  Approximately 70% of the children in the McMinn County area are classified as Economically Disadvantaged, and their families have limited resources for providing print-rich environments in their homes. Let’s Read 20 aspires to collaborate with other community partners to educate our families on the importance of reading, to provide books and materials for their homes, and to increase the overall literacy of our residents.  

On-going book drive for any gently used or new books can be dropped off at the following locations:

Athens City Schools Central Office- 943 Crestway Drive Athens, TN
Etowah City Schools- 858 8th Street- Etowah, TN
McMinn County Schools Central Office-   3 South Hill Street, Athens, TN
Tennessee Technology Center
Athens Utility Board
