Boone County Libraries

In addition to the outstanding educational institutions found throughout Boone County, residents have access to several public library facilities that are brimming with educational and recreational opportunities. Students find the quiet environment suitable for studying, while other patrons leisurely take in the tranquility of a good read. Fiction and non-fiction books, reference and research materials, magazines, newspapers, genealogy services, audiovisual items, and more round out the collections discovered through area libraries. Surfing the Internet is made easy through public computer stations and wireless network connections. But, as Marilyn Martin, Assistant Department Head of the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library (HMMPL), says, “Our libraries are much more than books and media.”

Boone County’s public libraries play large roles in enriching the community through special programming and events for all ages. The Thorntown Public Library provides daily lunches and activities to the elderly community and has recently stepped in to assist the Thorntown Heritage Museum with its operations. The Lebanon Public Library invests in outreach programming at local schools, the Methodist Children’s Home, Morning Base and its Kenworthy Reading Camp. HMMPL, now in cooperation with both Lebanon and Thorntown Public libraries, has instituted a One Book, One Town initiative for the last several years. HMMPL also provides free low-income tax services for seniors, Visiting Nurse Services and a Youth Department that places a high priority on early literacy initiatives.

These are only a few examples of the ways Boone County libraries work with the community in order to enhance the overall quality of life for residents. Please utilize the following library contact list in order to obtain further information on library programming, events and resources.
