Anyone have experience with either the public library or Garnett library (the college one)? I know the public library has pretty poor selection, and cards are supposedly pretty expensive if you don't live in the city limits. What about Garnett's community lending service? what's that like? and can you request books from other libraries through either of our local ones? Any info is appreciated!

A library card at the West Plains Library used to be $25 if you lived outside the city limits. Yes...they can order books that they do not have from other libraries. Not too sure about Garnett's policies.

I work at Garnett Library. We have a good selection for academic purposes, and we have a pretty nice selection for fiction books considering we aren't a larger library. If you're not a student at Missouri State University-West Plains or other campuses in Missouri, you aren't allowed to request books from other libraries. As far as holding a community patron account, there's no fee to sign up. You would only have to pay fees if you have an overdue fee.

Amazing, thank you so much! I've been browsing your selection online, you have a shockingly good and up-to-date poetry selection.

Patron is just disgruntled a bit due to the fact that she has never been responsible with the material that she checks out, thats why until she pays up she is not going to be checking any thing out! Garnett's library lookout for her! Amber Alert!
