G.C.L. Progress One Brick at a Time.

          From the beginning. . .


In August of 2001, we celebrated our Grand Opening at    304 N. Park. Library patrons and county residents crowded into the new library to browse the new book shelves, read and relax in the comfortable reading area, sample a cup of coffee at the coffee buffet, or log on to the new computers.




The beautiful new Gentry County Library!

This lot ( which just happened to be across the street from the library's then location), was purchased to be the new home of the Gentry County Library. After a lot of clearing and demolition it was ready to go. 


If you are interested in adding a leaf to our Donor Tree, our library has a variety of leaf options available this is a great thing to do as a family or in remembrance of a family member. Each leaf is engraved with the honoree's name as well as the person/s who gave the donation. It is truly a beautiful way to honor someone.

Our extensive Genealogy collection now has a proper home.

     We have people from all over the world come to Gentry County Library to research our collections.


All  of the cabinetry is custom made of beautiful oak hardwood. We are so proud of our new circulation  desk , as well as the  fantastic new shelving. The wood is a wonderful backdrop to all the exciting books.














Storybook cottage is filled with the wonder of  Beatrix Potter, from the showcase filled with retired Peter Rabbit figurines, to the mural on the wall and the characters from the Peter Rabbit story peeking out from behind the books. This cozy nook is filled with magic for our readers young and old alike.






  The Gentry County Library has visitors from all over the United States. The reasons they come to the new facility are  as varied as the people. They are thrilled to discover that it is a warm, pleasant, accessible library. If you haven't had an opportunity to visit the new library yet, please take a moment and check it out.
