Sarcoxie Public Library

506 Center Street
Sarcoxie, MO 64862

History :

In May 2001, a permanent museum-quality exhibit for V.E. Lynch was dedicated. Mr. Lynch was a famous outdoorsman and author who is buried in Sarcoxie. Today visitors can still view his antique typewriter and mementos from a by-gone era. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2002 donated two computers, a scanner and a laser printer to the library. These are very popular with all ages and include many programs like Microsoft Publisher, Photoshop, PowerPoint, and Excel. The future looks bright as goals include an Online Catalog and color laser printing and scanning. So ask about joining the Friends of the Library and visiting the “Old Red Front” library, first built prior to 1878 as a department store. You will find the Sarcoxie Public Library collection totals 14,000 volumes and offers videos, books on tape, large print books, free internet access, and genealogy services.
