Hours Changing at Tazewell County Public Library (TCPL)

Beginning Monday, July 2, 2018 TCPL will be making changes to Saturday hours and night hours. This is due to the recent budget cuts in Tazewell County which has resulted in a reduction of staff.

TCPL libraries usually open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 5:30 p.m. On specific nights libraries have remained open until 8:00 p.m. Changes are as follows:

Night Hours

Bluefield Branch: Instead of opening at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesdays, it will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Richlands Branch: Instead of opening at 9:00 a.m. on Mondays, it will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Tazewell Main: The library will close at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays Instead of being open until 8:00 p.m. The library’s hours will remain the same on Thursdays, being open from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Saturday Hours

All three TCPL libraries will be open 4 hours on Saturdays instead of 8 hours, and will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
