Bike Program on Hiatus

Currently, our "Book-A-Bike" program is on hiatus until the Spring. The bikes will be available again beginning on March 1st.   We have partnered with the Knox County Health Department to help increase the activity levels of people in our community. After completing some required forms, you may use your library card to check out a bike and helmet. There are a limited number of bikes and one pull behind 2-child cart (called a Burley Bee). Please call the library for further details as bikes may be unavailable on certain days and in certain weather conditions. 

Holiday Excitement

We love the holidays at the library!  All the Christmas books and movies are on our shelves, so be sure to stop in and look for your favorite.   We all look forward to seeing the classics, like "It's a Wonderful Life." Storytime and Lapsit have wrapped up and will resume in January. 

Fall Fest is Coming

Fall Fest makes a triumphant return on September 24th from 2:00-4:00 PM.  It will take place in the street along side of the library (Clayton).  There will be food, music, activities and fun!
