Located in the heart of Grundy County in northern Missouri, our library was dedicated on October 31, 1891; and along with Mr. Jewett Norris, is steeped in history and tradition.

Today, we offer a wide array of modern services, including a large selection of genealogy materials; library cards for ages six and up (free to Grundy County residents); fax, copy, and lamination services; computer prints; microfilm readers; internet access; inter-library resources; and much more!

Our mission is to provide for the educational, informational, recreational, and cultural needs of the residents of Grundy County by offering a professionally selected and well-organized collection of print and non-print materials as well as other library services.
