The libraries in Pineville and Southwest City each have TWO Special Children’s Computers designed especially for kids ages 3 to 9 years old!
These computers have lots of fun, kid-friendly and educational software titles loaded, and they are NOT connected to the Internet, so they are safe for your kids to explore to their heart’s content.
There are no special forms to fill out, and no logins/passwords required… Your kids can just sit down and start using them immediately!

THIS YEAR the Summer Reading Program is for EVERYONE!
Program ends last week of July.
Why should the kids get to have all the fun? That’s right… Adults can now get in on the adventure!
This year’s time/activity logs are something special! As 2011 is the semicentenary (50th anniversary) of the secession of McDonald Territory, and co-incidentally, this year’s Summer Reading Program theme is TRAVEL, we decided to issue these novelty passports for use as our log books. There are different “passports” for the Children, Teens, and Adults… We think you and your whole family will really enjoy them!
The log books are FREE, and yours to keep, just for participating in the Summer Reading Program!
We hope you will come in to any of our library branches and enroll you and/or your children TODAY…
Don’t delay, because the SRP is happening June and July only!
We are thrilled to announce the GRAND OPENING for the Anne Croxdale Memorial Library in Southwest City was held on Saturday, May 7th, 2011 at 11 A.M. (exactly one year to the date of our groundbreaking).
Photos and videos of the Grand Opening are available on our Facebook page…
The library is now open to the public for regular hours:
Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
The staff of the McDonald County Library is looking forward to welcoming many new patrons to our latest branch location… If you are already a library patron and use our libraries in Pineville or Noel, then you will NOT need to re-apply for a new library card, as your existing card may be used at all three locations.
If you do not yet have a library card, it is quick and easy to get one of your own! Click here to learn how.
