Fall is officially here! Check out our fun program line up for October!
All of our programs are FREE and open to the public–even if you don’t have a library card.
Thanks to a partnership between the Missouri State Library, MOREnet and TumbleWeed, a new statewide resource is available to you!
TumbleBookLibrary Deluxe is an online subscription that provides access, inside the Library or at your home. You now have access to a collection of 550 animated, talking picture books for children in preschool through grade 3!
It’s simple – click the tumbling book icon in the upper right corner and enter your library card number.
Note: You’ll need to include the two zeros before your six digit card number. Example: If the barcode on your card reads 24489001230449, you’d enter 00123044.
Please call the Library at 417-223-4489 if you need assistance.
There’s a new feature we encourage you to take advantage of:
You can now log in to our OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog) and update your account with your current contact information, as well as accessing many other interesting features you might not know about.
Simply click the Log In button in the upper right corner, enter your library “barcode” number/PIN, then click the “Account” tab, and fill in the blanks. Please remember to click the “Save” button when you are finished, and that’s all there is to it!
And if you haven’t tried it lately, explore all the “Card Catalog” features available, such as: Custom Search options, items you have on Reserve / Checked out, if you have Fines/fees due, add Watch Lists, and Review your recent history to see what books/movies in a series you’ve already checked out.
One of the best features is the “Bookbag” – where you can search for books & movies that interest you anytime you like, and save them in a virtual “Bookbag” that you create. Then, when you visit the library next time, you don’t have to rely on your memory – just log in and check your bookbags to remember which ones you wanted, and if they are currently available or not. Why not give it a try right now?
We’ve rolled out a new time & effort-saving feature that we hope you will love…
Now, when you search our OPAC (Online Public Card Catalog), you also have easy access to our E-Book & Audio collection. Just look for the OverDrive buttons and tabs…
Otherwise, when you perform a search by Keyword, Title, Author, etc… You will be shown results in our library collection first.
To search the OverDrive E-Book & Audio results for the same search, simply click the OverDrive tab.
We hope this search integration will now make it even easier to find the material you are looking for!
Our Library is part of the Missouri consortium, and partnered with OverDrive to make thousands of eBooks and Audiobooks available for loan to cardholders of the McDonald County Library!
To find eBooks and Audiobooks available for download, search Missouri Libraries 2 Go.
You will need to download some free software to read/listen to these downloads. It is highly recommended to either take the Guided Tour and/or read the Quick Start Guide FIRST, before you download titles. Help is available online if you need it… Give it a try!
For product-specific information about your brand & model of eBook reader/tablet, try the OverDrive Device Resource Center.
Kindle users can watch this video to see step-by-step instructions on downloading Library eBooks.
Note: The Missouri Libraries 2 Go service is for our library patrons only. You will be prompted to enter your library card information when you begin your download.
(The Project Gutenberg eBooks are for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever. You may copy them, give them away or re-use them under the terms of the Project Gutenberg License included with these eBooks or online at www.gutenberg.org.)
When prompted for your library card number, enter your number EX-cluding all the leading zeroes.
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.
You can view the Jesse James Movie collection, or browse the entire Missouri Digital Heritage website.
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!
