Knox County Public Library is pleased to announce that Books for the Homebound is now back in service! This free service is for adult Knox County residents who are unable to come to the library without assistance due to a permanent or temporary disability and have no one to pick up materials for them. Once a month, a volunteer will deliver and pick up previous month’s materials for return to the library. Materials for the program are books, books on compact disc, music compact discs and movies.

Those interested in enrolling may contact Books for the Homebound by calling 865-215-8721 or emailing [email protected].
