Thursday offered a full day of activities for visitors to the Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library. In partnership with the United Way of Elizabethton/Carter County, the library hosted “Raise Your Hand, Fun Day at the Library!” The event at the Elizabethton library was part of a statewide program called Raise Your Hand Tennessee Day of Action that was sponsored by the United Ways of Tennessee and the Tennessee State Library and Archives. The goal was to recruit volunteers who will “raise their hand” to read to, tutor or mentor kids.
