Parents or a legal guardian are required to sign the registration card for all children under the age of 18. Replacement cards can be obtained for a $4.00 charge.

You may apply for a library card in person at the library or by calling 423-745-7782 to apply over the phone. Patrons applying by phone will be required to show a valid government issued photo I.D. and proof of current mailing address to pick up their card.

Library cards are renewed each year to ensure your information is up to date.. To renew your card, bring a valid government issued photo I.D. to the circulation desk at the library.

Toys, Trains, and Lego Playing on August 30th at 4 pm

We know that our trains, toys, and Lego sets have been dearly missed so on August 30th at 4pm we will be welcoming families into our community room to play with these items.

All the toys will be thoroughly cleaned before and after the event. We hope one day soon we can reintroduce the trains tables back for everyday use.
