Firefly Holidays

On which holidays is the courier not operating? Firefly typically follows the dates set by the state of Tennessee, excluding Veteran's Day. The actual dates of observation may be different, e.g., if Christmas falls on a Sunday, the following Monday and Tuesday may be the observed holidays. When a holiday falls on Saturday, the Friday before the holiday is substituted. When the holiday falls on Sunday, the Monday following the holiday is substituted.
On these holidays, the courier service will not visit libraries unless the library staff contacts us using the Firefly Courier Issues Form to request a pick-up on a holiday. Also, if your library is closed on days other than these, complete the Firefly Courier Issues Form.
