The mission of the Sevier County Library System is to provide the community books and information it needs for its educational, intellectual, recreational and professional pursuits. The Library offers these services at the main library and both of our branch libraries. The library serves the needs of the community, not only with books, videos and books on tape but by offering computer/internet access for the public, children's programs, a variety of outreach programs, and a meeting room for public access. The library also has a large variety of magazines for reading or for checking out. The public has access to all local newspapers. Sevier County Public Library System envisions a pathway to unlimited possibilities for our community by offering equitable access to evolving collections and programs. The present library made its move from its 28-year-old home in the Masonic Temple to a $166, 00 modernistic facility of some 6000 square feet on Court St. in November of 1968. It has served the community for almost 40 years and will soon be replaced with a new 45, 000 square foot building.
