Inclement Weather Policy

Snow is in the forecast so it is a good time to remind everyone that both branches of the Webster County Library practice the general rule that if the local school system is closed due to inclement weather the library will also be closed.
With that in mind…IF the school system is closed but the library parking lot, sidewalks, etc are clear of ice and snow the library will do it’s best to be open.
On days you are just unsure, it is best to check social media or call ahead to see if the library will be open before you make the trip. Our number one goal is the safety of our staff and patrons!

Paws To Read at the Rogersville Branch Library

We are excited to announce our new monthly program at our Rogersville Branch, Paws to Read! Starting in August on the first Saturday of the month from 10:30-12.

Beginning and reluctant readers are invited to read aloud to Sophie a registered therapy dog who loves stories! After registering you will be notified of your assigned time to bring a book to read to Sophie.


Reading to a dog is a great way to improve a child’s reading skills and self-confidence.
