A little Bit About Us

“The mission of the Buena Vista Public Library is to make high-interest, high-demand materials readily available, as well as to actively support the lifelong learning, recreation, and information needs of community residents of all ages and abilities. Special emphasis is placed on stimulating children’s interests and appreciation for reading and learning, on integrating new technology with traditional library resources, and expanding access and services beyond the library’s walls”.

Since its establishment in 1898 the Buena Vista Public Library has been a source of recreational reading for adults and children of the town and surrounding area. The library will continue to serve as an “open door to exploration & learning” for all who need us. Today’s library is so much more than a “book repository”. The Buena Vista Public Library stands ready to provide the community with exceptional programming, computer services, answers to your informational needs, and a friendly smile! Have a question or a comment? Please feel free to call, mail, stop by or visit us on Facebook!

Donations and Gifts

Donation of Books and Audio Visual Materials

In accepting a gift of materials, the library reserves the privilege of deciding whether items donated should be added to the collection. Donations are limited to 10 items per household, and the library reserves the right to dispose of the materials in the manner best suited to library needs. At this time, the library only accepts donations of Hardback fiction books, and/or DVD’s that are less than 3 years past their publication date. Due to lack of storage, staff time, and cost to income ratio, the library does not hold an annual book sale. Please do not leave items during hours the library is closed. *See full donation policy, under the policies tab.
