Just like in the library, here you will find access to many resources, in a user friendly format, and we hope that you’ll bookmark our site on your home computer, so you can return again and again for answers, ideas, and help to meet your needs. From this front page you’ll have easy access to the three libraries in our system, the online catalog for our collections, a calendar of events for upcoming programs and so much more! Email, social media, resumes, job searches, hobby help, music, videos, news, and online resources are just a few of the many ways your library is supporting your school, work, and leisure pursuits. Enjoy browsing and as always, we’re just a phone call or visit away when you need us.
When you are 5 years old, have lost your home and everything in it, you could have a long list of what you’d like to have back, what you would want replaced. But as it turns out, one 5-year-old in just that situation knew exactly what she wanted, and the list wasn’t long, it was just books. She told her teacher all her books burned and that was what she wanted most.
The Sevier County Public Library System was happy to be a collection point for needed items for immediate relief for the recent wildfires and we thank all our patrons, staff, and others that contributed. Now, as a library system our focus will change so that we can put new books back in the hands of all our communities’ children and students who lost everything in the fires, so they can enjoy reading again, with books they can call their own.
From now until February 11th, the Sevier County Public Library System will collect new books for children, juveniles, and teens to be distributed in February, for ‘Love Your Library’ month, where we will turn that around and ‘Love Our Readers’ that have lost so much recently by giving all the books we collect away to all of those children. We’d love to have your help in making this program a success by a donation of new books or money to purchase new books. You can drop a new book off for any child/student to either of the three libraries in our system including King Family at 408 High Street, Sevierville; Kodak Branch at 319 West Dumplin Valley Road, Kodak; or the Seymour Branch at 137 West Macon Lane, Seymour. Or you can mail your tax deductible donation to King Family Library, Attn: Wildfire Kid’s Book Project, 408 High Street, Sevierville, TN 37862.
Giving the gift of reading is a good idea every day of the year, but at this special season, when so many have lost so much, it is a beautiful way to help families begin to move forward. Thank you for your generous giving spirit.
