The Tennessee Room houses your Library’s large non-circulating collection of regional history books, periodicals, and local genealogical resources.
The collection is focused on Northeast Tennessee, but includes other central Appalachian history and genealogy as well. We are also actively growing our collection of regional indigenous and Black history.
The Tennessee Room includes extensive genealogical records, many of which are compiled and contributed by local genealogists. We also have current genealogy magazines that cover the latest in genealogical research and technology.
The Tennessee Room features a state-of-the-art microfilm reader and includes editions of the Johnson City Press from 1982-2020. The microfilm reader is also available to view your own films or films from other libraries.
