All SCPL locations will be closed on Wednesday, June 19 in observance of Juneteenth.


SCPL’s catalog is an online index of materials that the library has available for patrons’ use. The catalog, contains entries that provide details about each item including author, publication date, location, and a brief summary. The catalog contains entries for all the books, DVDs, audiobooks, and magazines owned by the library.   SCPL joined the Holston Associated Libraries (HAL) consortium in July, 2023 and the new shared catalog reflects physical materials in the collections of all HAL members. Patrons may request the loan of materials from any HAL member library at no cost.
