Library Mission Statement
The mission of the Cooke County Library is to provide all persons in the community with a safe and confidential environment in which they may freely pursue intellectual, educational, and recreational interests through diverse services and resources collected in a variety of formats. The Cooke County Library respects the dignity of our patrons and the diversity of their needs. We extend the same commitment to the public that we extend to our employees; we will not discriminate against anyone in the provision of library services because of race, religion or creed, color, sex, age, disability, veteran status, national or ethnic origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or marital or familial status.
The idea of a library in Cooke County has a very colorful history and has been an important landmark in the county since inception. Read more about the Library’s history here.
Read more about checking out items, photocopying, the library’s long range plan and more in the Library Policies page.
We’ve been awarded many grants since 2005. The grants have been used for purchasing new computers to having special performances. Some of the grants were joint projects with other local organizations. See the grants we’ve received.
