Friends of Seymour Library exists to advocate for and provide high quality and accessible library facilities, services and programs that enhance the intellectual and cultural life and literacy of the residents of the greater Seymour community.

The Seymour Branch of the Sevier County Public Library System (SCPLS) is unique because it serves patrons who live in three counties (Blount, Knox & Sevier). More than a collection of books and periodicals, the Seymour Library provides a gathering place for a community without a town hall, computer access for students, researchers, and job seekers, as well as engaging programs for all ages PLUS a cozy reading area!

In 2015 the Sevier County Commission purchased the lot adjoining the existing Seymour Branch Library. The Sevier County Public Library System, the Friends of Seymour Library (FOSL), local businesses, community leaders, and many of our Seymour Neighbors are actively involved in raising funds to expand our branch library. How can you help? Please donate to the Building Fund for our expanded Seymour Branch Library. Even small donations are appreciated and all proceeds will be used for library construction right here in Seymour. Let's Build a Better Library!

Thank you for your support!


This IS going to be a happy year for The Williams Family Seymour Branch Library. The expanded building will open, possibly in July. I hope you have been keeping track of the progress; it is heartening. And I hope you have visited the library in its temporary location; the basic functions of a library are ongoing with our loyal staff even in a tight space. The Friends of Seymour Library will be planning interesting programs and book sales for the expanded library but in the meantime, we hope to get our membership list in order. You can help with that. It is time for most of us to pay our membership dues. You can do that via PayPal on the website, by sending a check to our mail box (PO Box 1253, Seymour) or by leaving it at the library. If you have questions please call 865-573-0728. Please fill out all the information below:
