NOTICE MAY 26, 2020
The Morristown-Hamblen Library will be reopening to the public on Monday, June 1, and will limit access to the number of patrons accessing the building in order to meet safe social distancing.
June 1 to June 30, 2020:
- Utilization of masks, temperature, and health questions asked will be consistent with City of Morristown and Hamblen County policy, as they currently exist.
We will limit patrons to as close to 10 at a time as possible in the building so that there will be adequate space for social distancing. Patrons will not be able to spend more than 30 minutes if they are not using the computer. Not all computers will be accessible at this time to comply with the 6-foot social distance rule. Those accessing computers will be limited to one hour. (No loitering)
Study rooms and meeting rooms including the Community Room are not in use during June.
Online Summer Reading Programming activities will be available; however, no library programming will be available at the facility during June. The Library will investigate safe alternative programming for those who may not have internet access.
- The Library will follow any new guidelines given from Officials as announced.
For patrons who wish to continue using curbside service, Staff will continue this during the following hours:
Monday to Friday – 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Saturday – 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Online payment for Hotspots will continue at this time.
Note Online Service and Resources Available 24 hours/day:
The Library’s many online resources, such as eBooks and audiobooks from Tennessee R.E.A.D.S., are always available at www.morristownhamblenlibrary.org. The Library’s online databases also include Tumblebooks for children, A to Z food, Creativebug, Acorn TV, and digital magazines. We have just added four new online resources to our website: TumbleMath, TeenBookCloud, RomanceBookCloud, and AudioBookCloud.
If you do not have a library card and would like access to the online library services, please go to our website and fill out the application for an electronic service only card (eCard).
As the coronavirus outbreak develops, please stay up to date on the Library’s plans and continue to access its digital resources by visiting www.morristownhamblenlibrary.org and following Morristown-Hamblen Library on Facebook for updates.
ECARDS NOW AVAILABLE!
The Morristown-Hamblen Library issues eCards for patrons in our service area who are unable to come in to the library and register for a full-access library card. An eCard will allow you to use all of our online resources, including eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, videos, Great Courses, Creative Bug, TumbleBooks, and AcornTV. An eCard will not be issued if you currently have a full-access library card. The eCard may not be used to check out physical material from the library or access the public computers. Complete the eCard registration form HERE and your new eCard number will be emailed to you within 3 business days. If you have questions about eCards or have lost your eCard number, please call the library at 423-586-6410 and ask for Tracy or Penny.

Are you ready to try Zoom, but not sure how to get started?
Zoom is a popular service for videoconferencing over the internet. You can meet with up to 100 people and see the other participants on live video as you talk. While staying safe at home, you can use Zoom to visit with family and friends, celebrate birthdays and graduations, meet with coworkers, or hold bible studies.
