Beginning Thursday, March 19, the Tipton County Public Library will be serving patrons at the curbside only.

The coronavirus outbreak has led many organizations to creatively serve the public and this is one way the library can stay open.


Who can use this service?

If you have an account in good standing – that is, you don’t have a block for unpaid fines or lost materials – you can call ahead to request a book pick-up.

How does it work?

You may use the TCPL online catalog at or call the library to request up to 40 items to be placed on hold for you.

If you need help choosing items, your librarians are happy to help find items for you.

When will pick up take place?

The library will now be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. You must pick your items up the day you’ve requested them and they must be picked up 15 minutes before the library closes. Call 901-476-2689 to schedule your time.

WiFi Printing

Have a document that you need to print? Wi-Fi printing will also be made available for curbside pick-up. Black and white prints will be available for 10 cents per page and you must call to the library to schedule a pickup time.
