Let's Read 20 is a partnership program including: Athens City Schools, Etowah School, McMinn County Schools, United Way of McMinn & Meigs Counties, and the McMinn County Education Foundation. The primary goal of this program is to encourage the citizens of McMinn County to READ 20 minutes a day, READ 20 books to themselves or to children, READ to 20 children, and/or DONATE $20 for the purchase of books. Little libraries have been placed in various sites about the county. They are full of new and gently used books for anyone to borrow. New and gently used books can be donated at any of the three schools systems' central offices. Athens City Schools is donating the use of a bus that is being renovated into a mobile library which will visit communities and events throughout the county.
