JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

A local library reached a big milestone Thursday -- the Johnson City Public Library checked out its 500,000th book.
They tell us it's a milestone that is 118 years in the making.

We're told Nora Pugh, with parents Joey and Rachael Pugh, checked out the book.

The Pugh family has been regulars at the library for several years and they were delighted to share in this exciting event.
