  • The De Soto Public Library has been serving the De Soto community since 1935 and is supported by a tax voted by those residing in the city limits of De Soto. It is governed by a board of nine individuals appointed by the Mayor of De Soto.  
  • Currently the library collection consists of over 29,000 items to include books, audio books, DVD's, magazines, and microfilm.  The library also has a collection of local history, pictures, and genealogical materials.  Over 5,000 people have library cards and are active users of the library.
  • We joined the Missouri Evergreen consortium February 1st, 2016.
