New hours at the Jefferson Public Library are as follows Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6:00.

"On Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., curbside only is offered," Elizabeth Jones states. "Please call ahead for curbside service Mondays through Saturdays, during business hours."

The library will continue to wave fines until further notice. All books are quarantined four days before check in. If you see fines on your account, don’t worry, they will be forgiven! If the fines prevent you from using Pines, give us a call to fix it. We offer printing, copying, faxing, and scanning to email for a small fee."

For more information on what services are provided, log on to or call 706-367-8012.


Celebrate the change of season by checking out the new fall and spooky book displays.

"And don’t miss our pop up large print book sale," Jones says. "Large print books are $1, cash or check."

She adds, "Also be sure to try our new challenge on Bean Stack! 1000 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 1000 books (and yes you can repeat books!) before your child begins kindergarten. Go to to get started today."
