Our young patrons are very important to the library, and Library Director Carrie Cline presents Story Times each Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Pineville Library, and Thursdays at 12:30 p.m. at the Southwest City Library. Miss Carrie reads stories to each group, then lets them participate in fun crafts and other activities.
Reading is such an important skill to have, and a child is never too young to develop a love of books and literature. We encourage all parents to bring their preschool-aged children… And this isn’t like a class structure where you must attend each week – just come whenever you can!
If you have any questions call Miss Carrie at the Pineville Library (223-4489) or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org

In 1938, the Hollywood movie “Jesse James” was filmed in the Missouri Ozarks. The movie, produced by Twentieth Century Fox and starring Tyrone Power, Henry Fonda, and Nancy Kelly, was primarily filmed in McDonald County, and many of its citizens took part in the movie as extras. The film, which was a box office success, was Missouri’s first major contribution to Hollywood filmmaking history. And every August the city of Pineville continues to commemorate its role in the film with its annual “Jesse James Days” celebration.
The Jesse James Movie collection includes photographs and memorabilia from the 1938 shooting of the film. These items document the arrival of Hollywood stars and production teams, the filming of the movie in Pineville and elsewhere in McDonald County, and involvement of locals. Included are on- and off-set candid shots of the movie stars.
The Missouri Digital Heritage site (formally “Virtually Missouri”) has more than 6.8 million records, including the collections of the Missouri State Archives, the Missouri State Library and more than 50 institutions from across the state. There’s a wealth of fascinating photographs, maps, state records and other historical documents. We are very pleased to be a part of this excellent resource!
In cases of inclement weather, the library will be closed when the schools are forced to close.
After the first day, we will evaluate the road conditions and will reopen as soon as possible, even if the schools remain closed. If we are closed, no overdue fines will be accrued that day.
If you have questions, please contact the Pineville library at 417-223-4489.
In addition to our Library’s OverDrive collection, you can also download an UNLIMITED amount of FREE eBooks from these sources:
Also, you can find many titles searching under Google Books. We recommend using their Advanced Book Search, and selecting the “Full View Only” option to limit your search to the complete (fulltext) books available.
