Library Card Sign Up Event
September is library card sign up month. While we love for you to get a library card ANYTIME, we take this month to really push library sign up and we want to help you discover what all your library has for you! Our official event will be on Thursday, September 10th and will be a come and go event. We will have great prizes, snacks, a scavenger hunt, and crafts available for children aged 5-17 getting their first library card. We have a very fun superhero theme this year. We hope to see you there! * Please be advised we do have a mask requirement. Please contact the library for curbside options if you are unable to wear a mask. 731-989-4673
Library COVID-19 Update
Currently, the library restricts the number of individuals inside the library to no more than 20. There is no browsing of the library at this time. We recommend use of our online catalog, new items listings, or mystery bags when you are selecting items for checkout. All items must be pulled by staff. We do offer curbside and contactless delivery options. Only four computers are available and there is a strict one hour time limit for time spent in the library or on the computers. All of our programming will be completed virtually.
Please note that storytime occurs every Tuesday at 10:15 am via the library Facebook page. Storytimes are live but are available for viewing once the storytime has ended. We do have activity craft bags available each week that correlate with our storytime theme at the library!
We were fortunate enough to receive a grant through the State of TN to offer technology trainings to our patrons! For September, we have the following trainings available.
