    Knox County Public Library’s Summer Library Club is a fun and effective way to help kids of all ages maintain reading skills throughout the summer break. The incentive package includes a coupon book for treats donated by community businesses worth more than $200, and a prize for every child!

    Ask any librarian: the prizes WORK. The robots, duckies and drawstring bags motivate kids to keep reading. The Awesome Science Show, the Zoomobile, and the musicians and magicians bring families to the Library.

    Want to show your support for this awesome program? Here’s how:


    Our Mission: Friends of the Knox County Public Library is dedicated to fostering a love of libraries, books, and reading in the Knox County area by community outreach, advocacy, and support of the Knox County Public Library System and staff.


    The foundation of democracy is an educated electorate. When the economy is down, it is all the more vital that we the people have access to information, education, news…and now in modern times the internet…Libraries do that. For everyone.
