Library2Go icon

The Williamson County Public Library System takeout service to provide library materials to patrons while the facilities are closed and with minimal interactions continues at all Library Branches except College Grove on Tuesday and Thursdays.  Our College Grove Branch will continue to offer Library2Go services Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm.

Here’s how to use our Library2Go service* at the Main Library:

1. Hours: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursday

2. Call us at 615-595-1277 between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm to request up to 10 items per family or to pick up your item(s) currently being held on the hold shelf**.

3. Staff will find the items and check them out to you.  Please allow an hour or more for your request to be processed.

4. Drive up to the door between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm or 2:00 and 6:00 pm.

5. A masked staffer will ask for your name, retrieve your items, and place them on a table for you.  Your borrowed materials list will be in the bag.

6. Once the sliding glass  doors close behind the staff member, you may retrieve your items.

7. Returned items go in the outside return book drop.

We look forward to serving you and putting books and more in the hands of our readers.  Be well and stay safe.

*Your Library account must be in good standing with not more than $3 in fines and no overdues. 

**Items on hold prior to the “safer at home” initiative are still on hold and may be picked up.***

For your own safety, we recommend wearing gloves when picking up your items.  This service is “use at your own risk.”  Library Staff wipe down the book covers when received and wear gloves as we handle materials but we have no method for cleaning pages.

Our goal is to maintain a manageable level of items going in and out that we can disinfect and loan with the number of staff on duty.  These guidelines may be changed based on new information during the current pandemic and/or due to the need to adapt the procedure as it is implemented.  Your understanding of the current limitations is greatly appreciated.

Any person with a temperature registering greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or a positive confirmation to any of the health questions will not be allowed in the facility. Entrance will be based on limited occupant capacities and social distancing practices will be required. Once full occupancy is met, entrance will only be allowed as patrons exit the facility.

Powerlines Lines Down

 

The Williamson County Emergency Management Agency (WCEMA) is looking for the public’s assistance to document damages resulting from the storms on Sunday, May 3 and Monday, May 4. The information will be used to assist the department and the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency in collecting consolidated impact information and for the National Weather Service as they assess the damage. Residents can report damage through the established online damage survey: https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/3b1684f8beaa4015a2647741f5d82506

The survey will collect specific information about:

  • What is damaged
  • Types of damage
  • Extent of damage
  • Location
  • Contact Information

According to the National Weather Service, These storms produced widespread straight-line wind damage across nearly every county of Middle Tennessee, with numerous trees, power lines, and buildings damaged. They stated that a peak wind gust of 71 mph was measured at the Nashville International Airport.

Disaster preparedness and response information can be found on the WCEMA website, www.williamsonready.org. Connect with WCEMA on Facebook and Twitter.
