Following guidance from the White House coronavirus task force, Johnson City Public Library closed on Wednesday, March 18 until further notice. This closure includes the cancelation of all events occurring at the Library. We are taking this step to ensure the health and safety of our users and employees.
Don’t worry about returning items during this time, even if they are overdue; the due dates of library materials you currently have will be extended through the closure period and there won’t be any late fees. Any holds you have placed will be ready for pick up after we reopen. We aren’t able to accept donations of books and media while we’re closed.
We do not take the decision to close lightly. Interrupting our mission is something we do only out of concern for the health and wellbeing of our community. Please stay safe, monitor your health, and follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Check the Tennessee Department of Health and the City of Johnson City websites for local updates.
We look forward to seeing you again when we reopen!
