The Bollinger County Library is not just a great place to check out a book. We are first and foremost a Literacy Center for all ages. The new mother that comes in to get their child started as a life long reader, the father that comes in to try to get his son some books that he will enjoy and the Grandmother that needs books to get her through the bad weather.

Second, we are a Technology center. We have the only secure, filtered public computer access in the county. We help all ages with not only the computers we have but also when they get a new device and can't quite figure it out we are there to help. We are also the only public fax, copy and notary service in the county.
Possibly the most unknown service that we provide is as a community partner. We partner with almost every public and civic agency in the county, not to duplicate services but to enhance services. Our partners include MERS/Goodwill, East Missouri Action agency, the Schools, the Food Pantry, the Health Center, Extension Office, Chamber and many more.
"Great books help you understand, and they help you feel understood."
"I have found the most valuable thing in my wallet is my library card."
"Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.”
“Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.”
“What in the world would we do without our libraries?”
“In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.”
