What is available at the Sikeston Public Library?

Within the walls of the library, we offer a traditional library collection with a mixture of books, audio/visual materials, and periodicals. We have almost 45,000 items in the library’s physical collection.


The library subscribes to 3 daily newspapers — the Standard-Democrat, the Southeast Missourian, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. We also subscribe to 70 different magazine titles, ranging from weekly to bi-monthly magazines.


In addition to the collection held locally, we have access to over 2 million items through the Missouri Evergreen system. The Missouri Evergreen consortium includes 37 libraries from around the state of Missouri, sharing a common catalog of items which can be accessed from the library or home to borrow items.


Through our membership in MoLib2Go, the library offers access to over 30,000 e-books, downloadable audiobooks, and videos. The MoLib2Go consortium unites over 100 Missouri libraries to offer a wide variety of materials for use on phones, tablets and computers.
