Jefferson City Public Library


WELCOME TO THE JEFFERSON CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY!



Jefferson City Public Library has been fortunate in having a library since the 1930s, when a committee for the Monday Literary Club and others started the movement for a public library. Various locations throughout the city have been known as the library from a small room in City Hall to various stores in the community. At one time the library was located in the old high school property after the city had acquired it until that building burned. In 1954 in response to a letter from the Monday Literary Club requesting a permanent and adequate location for the collection of books, the city appointed a library board to be comprised of four citizens from the population at large and one from the governing board. The present location on Russell Avenue was proposed for a library, an indoor recreation area and a public meeting place. From 1965-1991 the library was known as Bales Memorial Library. It shared the space with others until 1984 when the city expanded the library space to include the whole main level floor of the present building. In 1968 the council voted the sum of $200.00 for the rental of books from the county, which indicates the city joining forces with the county in use of and cooperation with the Nolichucky Regional Library system and the Tennessee system of public libraries.

Jefferson City Public Library is a member of the Jefferson County Public Library System. Your card is accepted at all libraries within the system.
