Adults* read just 4 books, and you'll receive a Knox County Public Library tote bag (while supplies last; only 1 per person). Plus, if you get caught reading, you'll be a great role model for the kids in your life. Research shows that when adults read in front of their kids, the children are more likely to grow up to be readers.

*All participants must have a Knox County Public Library card in good standing.
