The Public Library came up with a program to help out students who do not have a way to the library to check out or return books. Students also do not have to worry about paying a late fee if they do not have a way to return the books. This new program is called Tennessee Kids Read.
With this new program, teens do not have to worry about making it to the public library to check out or return books. Items can be kept up to three weeks and there is no overdue fees. There are free online access to thousands of books like popular novels, informational books, magazines, and more. It is open to East and West kids and maybe eventually it will be open to the public.
The website is called Tennessee Reads. Students can access e-books and audio books on the website. Students can access this by going to reads.overdrive.com or going to morristownhamblenlibrary.org. Brittany Long, a librarian at Morristown West, said, “We hope many students will use this. This allows students to access books without having to have a parent sign for a library card and without having to worry about fines!"
