Announcement from the Library Director:

Libraries nationwide have shown that charging late fees to patrons does not effectively encourage the return of late materials. Instead, it can create barriers for young people or make patrons feel guilty, which may discourage them from using the Library. We are committed to breaking down these barriers and increasing access for our patrons. By showing goodwill, we encourage patrons to return materials on time.
Morristown-Hamblen Library is dedicated to providing all patrons with fair access to library materials and services. A public library’s purpose is to serve the community and is built on sharing resources. To ensure that our Library remains accessible and welcoming to all community members, we have implemented a no-fine policy for overdue materials. Our no-fine policy is designed with your convenience in mind. We understand that life can get busy, and we want you to feel confident in your continued use of the Library. If you have items that have yet to be returned and are long overdue, please return them,and we will remove the fine, ensuring you can enjoy our services without any hindrance.
Join us in celebrating this week, July 1 to July 6 (Closed on July 4); we’ll be serving free donuts in the morning (while they last) and offering chances to win prizes. It’s a perfect opportunity to come by and visit the Library!

At the Morristown-Hamblen Library, we want everyone in the community to be able to use our resources.  This includes our website.  Look for “Accessibility Tools and Language Options” in our main menu.  Clicking on this will open up the ReciteMe toolbar, which contains tools for font selection, color selection, language translation, a screen reader, magnification, and more!  For more information, refer to the User Guide or ask a librarian.

The most recent urgent need is the Community Room flooring and updates to sound equipment, lighting, and a new coat of paint.  Some projects take extra funding, plays, programs for all ages, electronic materials, furniture, setting up and designing makerspace areas.  Your donation can make a huge difference.
