 Welcome to the Hawkins County Library System Website

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.

Streaming video now available from Tennessee R.E.A.D.S. 

Watch free videos from the library anytime, anywhere!

Tennessee R.E.A.D.S. has expanded its services with streaming video available to enjoy from the library’s website,   http://reads.lib.overdrive.com/

Tennessee library card holders have instant access to streaming video with a growing catalog of digital feature films, documentaries, educational, children’s favorites and more with a modern, easy-to-use viewing experience. Users may browse the video selection on the library’s website, borrow titles with a valid library card, and stream on most mobile and desktop devices. All videos will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!

This new service is free for users with a library card.
