LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – To continue serving citizens during the pandemic, LaFollette Library has curb service available.
According to librarian Nancy Green, the library is still providing many services such as making copies, sending faxes, and checking out books, puzzles and DVDs even though the library is currently closed to the public.
“We’re doing what we can to get through this,” Green said. The LaFollette Library has 1,659 card holders and usually sees hundreds of visitors a day. Many people come in to do job searches, use computers, check out books and more. The long-term closure to the public has changed a lot of that, but Green said she wants people to know that they can still access the local library.
Citizens can call the library to check out a book and make arrangements to pick it up and then return it via a curbside drop off.
“If people want to come check out a puzzle or book, they can call and we can let them come in one at a time to pick things out,” Green said. Once items are dropped off, they get sanitized before going back on the shelf.
For more information about curbside service available at the LaFollette Library, call Librarian Nancy Green at 423-562-5154. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/16/2020-6AM)
