Buffalo Mountain Room

The second-floor Buffalo Mountain Room offers open seating and tables with floor-to-ceiling windows. The room looks out over King Commons Park and downtown Johnson City.

Teen Space

We have a dedicated space just for teens on the second floor. The area has tables, comfy chairs, and a window seat for students to study and read. Board and video games are also available for groups to use in the Teen Space.

Tennessee Room

The Tennessee Room is a quiet area that houses books, periodicals, and genealogical resources on the history of Tennessee, focusing on Northeast Tennessee. It is open for genealogical research sessions of up to two hours.


Your Library welcomes local artists to display their original artwork in our Galleria. Through artist exhibitions, we highlight the cultural diversity in our community, support art appreciation, and engage individual creativity.
