We are pleased to have the United Way back this year to help you complete your federal and state tax returns. They will be at the Library each Saturday through tax season from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

If you enter the library from parking lot on the Thompson St. side, they will be in the conference room on the far right. For more information you can contact them at 901-433-4300.

Library Closed to Patrons

To protect our patrons and staff we have made the difficult decision to close the Library to any visitors.

However, Library staff are working the following hours:

Monday – Friday – 10:00 noon – 4:00 pm

We are available to take phone calls during these hours. If you want to check out books, give us a call at  870-732-7590 and tell us the titles you want to check out. We will check them out for you and place them on a table set up in the vestibule on the parking lot side of the library. Patrons may pick up their items there. We also are forgiving any fines during this time, but will still charge for damaged or lost items. The Library catalog can be accessed through the Search the Online Catalog link in the upper right of the page.

We do offer a wide selection of eBooks through Overdrive. Click the eBooks by Overdrive link on the upper right of the page.

Free Printing: We will print up any school packets and other documents free of charge. Documents may be emailed to westmemphispubliclibrary2019@gmail.com and we will print them for you.  Your printed items may be picked up on the table in the vestibule.

Stay safe and stay healthy! We will get through this together.
