We are a small library district in Carter County, MO in the central western portion of the Ozark Foothills Region in Southeast Missouri.  We have a population of 6,265. Our district has three libraries with our main branch in Van Buren, and our other two libraries in Grandin and Ellisnore.

We strive to serve the community with good books, DVD’s, wireless internet, technical training, technology services, and Inter-Library Loan. We also have many children programs especially in the summer.

All three branches offer fax and copies for a low fee.

A few other organizations associated with the libraries are:

Queen Anne Civic Club

Carter County Genealogy and Historical Society

Ozark Skies Astronomy Club
