Welcome to the Livingston County Library where we have two branches to serve your needs.

The Main Branch, located on Locust Street in Chillicothe, Missouri, offers our Adult Department with materials ranging from Fiction, Non-Fiction, Large Print Materials, Audiobooks and our outstanding DVD Collection.  We offer public access computers with printing capabilities, meeting rooms, genealogy resources and a host of services needed by our community and visitors. 

The Lillian DesMarias Youth Library is committed to inspire, excite, and encourage children and families.  Located on the main drag, or otherwise known as Washington Street, the Youth Library has collections for early literacy, primary and elementary aged children. We boast separate Middle Grades and Teen sections.  Patrons with a creative streak love the Ellison Room, complete with a full collection of Ellison Die Cutters in several sizes of shapes.  The Youth Library has study rooms for students tutoring, programming rooms for children and teens, student access computers and AWE Early Literacy computers for fun education online.  All this and more are awaiting you to our inviting, whimsical space created just for families!
