Starkville Public Library serves as headquarters library for the Starkville-Oktibbeha County Public Library System and is located in the community of Starkville, Mississippi, home of Mississippi State University. The library is an integral part of the community, offering not only books and reading materials, but art exhibits, community collection displays, programs and cultural events for all ages. The Library has a great selection of fiction and bestsellers. We have a waiting list for many of these books, so ask at the circulation desk to have a hold placed on them. If we do not have the book you are looking for here, we will gladly borrow it from another library. We are a member of the Mississippi Library Partnership.

The Friends of the Library now participate in the Kroger Community Rewards Program, for further information, visit the Friends Kroger Information Page
