One Read

The idea behind One Read first took root in Seattle in 1997.

Even so, they are routinely impressed with the level of involvement from our community and tell us that the quality of the One Read events sets our effort apart.

I can download my entertainment on the spot, wherever I am, through dbrl.org.

Technology in the Library

With so many companies, government agencies and schools requesting that people fill out applications and forms online, some people are left behind. Not everyone has a computer at home, and dial-up internet access is still as fast as it gets in some parts of Mid-Missouri.
