public library

MoUNtain city, tn 

The Library building remains closed to the public. We hope to re-open with limited access on July 1st and resume regular hours on August 1st. These dates are subject to change and are for the safety of our staff and patrons.

We will continue to help our patrons by phone & curbside service from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday thru Friday. Patrons must remain outside the building while we take care of their request. Please call or knock on the door upon arrival.


To ask for service or have a request handled in advance of arrival, Patrons may call 727-6544 or  send an email to johnsoncountypubliclibrarytn@gmail.com. 

Request items our library has in the building by using the online catalog. To access the catalog, open the Library website:www.johnsoncolib.org in a browser and click on the SEARCH link.


There are QuickLinks on the top right of the Library Catalog page to view a list of Audio Books or DVDs. Use the search box at the top of the page to find a Title, Author, Subject, Series, or ISBN.


The outside book drop may be used at any time for returning BOOKS ONLY. Please do not put the following items in the book drop: CDs, DVDs, donations, anything that is not a library book.


We will not charge overdue fines during the time that we are closed; due dates for checkouts and renewals will be extended. Patrons who have no fines or overdue items already on their library account may renew items through the online catalog one time, but will not get the extended due date.

In addition to library item requests we will print, copy or fax small documents. If the documents are online or on a smartphone, tablet or other electronic device, they must be sent to the library email address, johnsoncountypubliclibrarytn@gmail.com.


Downloadable eBooks, Audio books, and Videos are available for FREE with or without a library card. Open the library website: www.johnsoncolib.org and click on the Download eBooks or Audio books link in the box on the bottom of the left side of the page. Items that say "Wait List" at the top are not available for immediate download, but enter an email address to be notified when available.

Due to Governor Lee's recent Executive Order 30, restrictions kept in place (through May 29).  I have pushed back the reopening schedule.  We will stay the same through June 30.  July 1 will be the soft reopening and Aug. 1, we reopen at regular hours.  All of this can be subject to change.
