Jackson County Library Services
Jackson County Library Services (JCLS) serves the 220,000 residents of Jackson County with 15 branches.
The mission of the Jackson County Library District is to connect everyone to information, ideas, and each other. We provide a wide range of children’s, teen, and adult physical and electronic resources and collections as well as outreach services, including booktalks for elementary and middle school students, services for homebound patrons, and outreach to childcare centers.
Our ever-changing calendar of programs and events is diverse, including musical performances, lectures, art exhibits, classes, book groups, storytimes, and more. In 2015, JCLS adopted the 2016-2021 strategic plan, which was augmented by a new strategic roadmap in 2021.
Business Information services are available at the Library both online, and in-person. The Business Librarian is available Monday through Friday to share business information resources in and outside of the Library. JCLS is committed to strengthening the local economy as we support small business owners and entrepreneurs access the information they need to be resilient and thrive.
