New circulation system live for patrons
One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, "Can I search the library catalog from home?" Beginning in June, the answer is now "Yes!"

On Monday, June 16, Sikeston Public Library became  a part of the Missouri Evergreen consortium., which allows our patrons to search not only the holdings of the Sikeston Public Library, but the holdings of other libraries in the consortium as well. With the addition of the final branch of the Ozark Regional Library, the consortium now holds over 1.3 million items and serves 212,000 patrons.

In addition, once patrons have visited the library and received their new library card numbers, they can create and customize an account that lets patrons place books on hold locally and throughout the consortium, and specify how they wish to be contacted once those books arrive.

Patrons who are currently using our MoLib2Go service will eventually see an interruption of service, as we intergrate these two systems.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 471-4140 or contact us by e-mail at The library's card catalog can be searched and library accounts accessed by visiting

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.

The mission of the Sikeston Public Library in the 21st Century continues to be to provide high quality materials for its patrons in the areas of research, reading for pleasure and space for community service.  In order to accomplish this mission, the Board of Directors recognize that there will be a continuing need for more space, qualified personnel, technology, and additional sources for funding.
