While it is still largely closed to the public, E.G. Fisher Public Library is expanding its curbside and appointment offerings.
Community members can now pick up curbside materials, schedule a computer appointment and pick up a child’s lunch at the library.
“In order to best protect the community and library staff during this time, interior library access is limited to individuals with computer appointments,” stated a news release from the library. “Staff is available by phone to answer any questions Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 423-745-7782.”
E.G. Fisher Public Library is expanding access to contactless curbside pickup to include Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. Special appointments are available for those unavailable during these times.
Requests must be made no later than 3 p.m. the day prior to pick-up. Patrons may request items using their online library VERSO account or by phone. Each patron will be limited to 10 items total.
Children and teens ages 18 and under can pick up a free lunch at the library Monday through Friday between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Families should park close to the library entrance and wait for a staff member to deliver meals to the car. Meals can only be served to children who are present.
Computer appointments are now available for all community members. Call 423-745-7782 to schedule a one-hour appointment. TWRA Boating Safety Exam appointments are available by request.
No printing services are available at this time, however library staff can help patrons print using Staples e-mail service. All computer users must wear a face covering throughout the visit and will receive a touchless temperature check upon arrival.
The library dropbox is now open. Items must be returned via the outdoor drop box. Staff will not receive returns by hand at curbside service.
All items will be quarantined at the library for five days prior to re-entering circulation. Books may be renewed over the phone or through each patron’s online account.
