Library Closings

Inclement Weather Closings

If the library administration believes driving conditions pose a danger to our customers and our staff, the library will consider closing early, opening late, or remaining closed entirely.

Because such decisions are made often at the last minute, it is usually not possible to advertise the delay or closing widely. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Whenever possible we will advertise a change in hours on channel WLEX-18, on WKYT-TV, and on the JCPL website.

Holiday Closings

The library observes the following holidays by closing:

  • New Year’s Eve
  • New Year’s Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • President’s Day
  • Easter
  • Memorial Day
  • Juneteenth
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Eve
  • Christmas Day

Staff Training Closings

In addition to the holidays above, the library closes approximately twice a year for staff training. These days will be publicly posted on the library premises and on the events calendar at least one week before the closing.
