Vision 2013
Construction to renovate the lower level 

of the Sikeston Public Library
begins this summer!  

Click here for more information.

The library will be closed on Thursdays through May 29 to allow staff on focus on preparing our collection for migration to the Missouri Evergreen circulation system.

Search the library's collection from home
One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, "Can I search the library catalog from home?" Beginning this summer, the answer will be "Yes!"

Soon, library patrons will be able to search our collection from wherever they are as we switch to the Missouri Evergreeen circulation system. Sikeston Public Library will be the 18th library to join this consortium, which will allow our patrons to search other collections within the consortium for easier interlibrary loaning. Another benefit will include more seamless integration with MoLib2Go, our electronic resource provider.

As we receive more information and a firm date for the switch over, we will update this space.

E-books, downloadable audiobooks are here!

The Sikeston Public Library is now "live" in MoLib2Go, a statewide consortium providing e-book and audiobook downloads to library patrons.

Visit the library to pick up all the information you need to get started with downloadable books and audios.  There is no additional charge for e-books and audiobooks for any patron in good standing.
