A good book is a quick trip to a whole new world for those looking for an escape. One of theÂ best places to retire in TennesseeÂ now offers residents an even better getaway adventure with a whole variety of books to devour. Tellico Village, recently built aÂ new libraryÂ for property ownersÂ and residents in the surrounding Eastern Tennessee lake communities. The library isÂ one of manyÂ successful achievements initiatedÂ by The Villagers adding to the quality of life living atÂ Tellico Village.
On April 20, 2013, Tellico VillageÂ introduced their shinyÂ new building to a crowd of 150 people and a list of keynote speakers like Mayer Herron and Representative Matlock. The social clubs at Tellico Village were overjoyed withÂ appreciation. Chris Miller represented the GFWC Tellico Village Womenâ€™s Club whoÂ contributed $4,075 towards this yearâ€™s Children and Adult Summer Reading Program.Â
The Children and Adult Summer Reading Program sparked plenty of interest within the Eastern Tennessee lake communities and city of LoudonÂ Tennessee. Along with the countlessÂ choices of social clubs at Tellico Village, the community has added first classÂ educational activities to the list. The childrenâ€™s reading program continued on its second season and taught the young bookworms about the earth, plants and provided an interactive exercise to demonstrate the germination process of a plant.
2013 isÂ the start of the adult reading program at the Tellico Village library. The most recent programsÂ Lincoln/Jefferson: Contributions to EmancipationÂ was a hit in the community. Other successful programs likeÂ Photography AppreciationÂ and the upcoming workshop,Â Readerâ€™s TheatreÂ attracted attention from the community and social clubs at Tellico Village.Â
Other events hosted by the new library this year include the 19th Annual Used Book Sale. This year, Tellico Village library has alreadyÂ received 35,000 books. Some special donations included books from the Mears Family collection as well as autographed editions from renowned athletes that increased profits for the community library.Â
The comradery and united interest in education and learning is one of many reasons why Tellico Village has becomeÂ one of the best places to retire in Tennessee. Potential residents are taken aback with the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and Tellico lake views, but the additional perks of aÂ new library are wonderful for everyone in Loudon. Tellico Village stands out from otherÂ Eastern Tennessee lake communitiesÂ with its award winningÂ golf courses, upscale Wellness Center and private Yacht Club. Villagers and their guests can enjoy their choice of four clubhousesÂ to organize events and host special social club activities.
