As long as Knox county’s community transmission risk of COVID19 is at medium or low, masks are OPTIONAL in the Gibbs library, per CDC guidance. When the risk level is HIGH we require anyone entering the library wear a mask. We review this decision regularly. Please call or email if you have any questions or concerns. There are no restrictions on number of visitors or their length of visit. Curbside options remain available by request.
We thank the volunteers who keep the library open and the understanding patrons who help make our library a safe place for our most at-risk community members. We’re in this together.
Here are some quick tips about the library:
