In 1901 Andrew Carnegie donated $70,000 for the construction of a library building in the city of Jackson. The Carnegie building became the main branch for the newly created district in 1978. In 1981, with a bequest from Mrs. Mable MinterVan Orman, a circular structure was built at the rear of the library. This added an elevator, history room, back lobby and a children's storytelling room. The Carnegie building was designated a State Histroical site in 1979 and a National Historical site in 1980.
We operate 13 locations in Jackson County. You are encouraged to take full advantage of the collections, programs and services offered by the library.
The mission of the Jackson District Library is to provide Jackson County residents with high quality library services to meet the needs for educational, cultural, and recreational information, to promote literacy, and to foster a love of reading.
