Gloster Public Library

229 East Main Street
Gloster, MS 39638



The need for public library access is ever increasing. Its main function as a useful community information resource has now expanded as more patrons are entering public libraries for other purposes. Public libraries across the country have well-adapted to the digital age, thus making these institutions a haven for those who desire to increase their educational literacy as well. Public libraries are now serving a myriad of functions and are delivering a variety of new services to the community. 

The new roles that are being assumed by a public library system and its personnel have made them one of the most important places within communities. Although this is the case, state and local government officials are reducing the budget being provided to central public library offices and corresponding branches, thus making it impossible for community members to achieve their personal goals which ultimately result in positive social change.

US Public Libraries now serve four major functions namely:

-Rich source of information

-Supply educational materials to both the young  and old patrons

-Deliver recreational activities that instill positive values and useful information to community members

-Commonplace for cultural exercises that both entertain and educate people.
