Midland County Public Library

More than just a popular resource for books and media, the Midland County Public Library presents a variety of special events throughout the year, including story times, exercise classes and presentations such as the popular “Permian Monsters: Life Before the Dinosaurs” exhibition. Three branches are available to serve residents: the Centennial Library, the Downtown Library and a specialized Law Library.

In 2014 the Centennial Branch won the American Library Association (ALA) and International Interior Design Association’s (IIDA) Library Interior Design Award for public libraries of more than 30,000 square feet. The award is earned on the basis of aesthetics, design, creativity, function and satisfaction of the client’s objectives. Featuring a host of modern amenities and providing an inviting environment where residents can come to relax, learn and enjoy entertainment, the library has become one of Midland’s most appealing destinations.

The Centennial Library opened in 2013 in a 33,000-square-foot building that afforded opportunities for technology upgrades, museum-quality exhibits, and new and improved educational resources. High-tech touchscreens allow visitors to access the library’s vast collection of books and media, and the library also offers free Wi-Fi. Public computers are available for all ages to do research and develop their computer skills. Numerous activities are held throughout the year, including summer club meetings for teens, adult reading programs, family movie nights and much more. Library patrons also enjoy live performances by Midland-Odessa Symphony and Chorale, plus visits from authors who stop by for book signings.
