Welcome to the Library!

The De Soto Public Library has been serving the De Soto community since its beginning in 1935. It is supported by a tax voted by the people living within the De Soto city limits. It is governed by a board of nine people appointed by the Mayor of De Soto. Currently the library collection consists of over 32,000 items including books, audio books, movies, magazines and microfilm. The library also has a collection of local history, pictures and genealogical materials. We have 5,000+ people who have obtained library cards and are active users. The Library has received two Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grants via the Missouri State Library. These grants enabled us to purchase new books and replace some of our current books with updated copies. You will find many new titles to choose from in the children, junior and youth department. We also were able to upgrade our non-fiction department with many new titles. Stop in and check us out!
