A festive holiday display at the Jefferson Public Library greets visitors as they look for books.

Libby is back at the Jefferson Public Library to meet e-book and e-audio book needs of patrons.

"Libby is easy to use, just download the app, search for Piedmont Regional, then choose the “Georgia Download Destination” and input your library card number," Elizabeth Jones states. "Now you can browse, read and listen to thousands of e-books! If you need assistance, please call 706-367-8012."

The library hours continue to be Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. curbside only.

"Please call ahead for curbside service Mondays through Saturdays, during business hours," Jones states. "The library will continue to wave fines until further notice. All books are quarantined four days before check in. We offer printing, copying, faxing, and scanning to email for a small fee. For more information on what services we provide log on to or call 706-367-8012."


The large print book sale is still going on. Large print books are $1, cash or check.


"Be sure to try our new challenge on Bean Stack," Jones states. "1,000 books before kindergarten is a nationwide program designed to help parents and/or caregivers prepare their children for kindergarten by reading together. The program is self-paced and can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. The goal is to read 1,000 books (and yes you can repeat books!) before your child begins kindergarten."

Go to to get started.
