As of June 29, the Morristown-Hamblen Library will be closed to open traffic due to the rise of Covid-19 cases in Hamblen County until further notice.

The Library wishes to keep our patrons reading, provide information, and keep you entertained during this time. Please help us by following the guidelines of the CDC for social distancing.

In order to be safe, the following changes have been made for checking out your materials:

Pick up for materials will NOT be at the door. However, when you arrive, call the library number 423-586-6410 or text 423-301-6882 to let us know you have parked in the front of the Library. Please have the trunk or the door to your back seat open, and once you are back inside the car, the staff can place the items directly in your vehicle. Pickup will be from 10 to 5:30 Monday to Friday and 10 to 3:30 on Saturday.

Hotspot renewals may be paid online. Please call ahead to get the amount due.

Because Binge Box movies will not fit into the book deposits, please return them during library hours. Call or text the Library to let us know you have placed them at the front door. Staff will pick up the Binge box after you have walked away.

If you have any other questions about your account or materials, please call.
