Host a Read 20 Neighborhood Library

If you’ll build the “box,” we’ll help provide the books. Patterned after the national movement of “The Little Free Libraries,” Read 20 Neighborhood Libraries are small creative boxes filled with books that children are invited and encouraged to take home and enjoy. Instead of returning the books to the Neighborhood Library, Read 20 wants children to KEEP the books – and read them until they’re ragged!

Visit the Little Free Library website for dimensions and style options that will start your creative juices flowing. Then contact Read 20 at 423-209-6190 or shulay@hamiltontn.gov to arrange for your first books and tags. And a huge THANKS for helping Hamilton County children discover the love of reading! 

Make the Promise
