The Valparaiso Library is not just about books.  While you can always find a good read in our almost 8,000 volumes, we have more to offer.  There is something here for you and it is our goal to keep adding new activities, events and services to best serve Valparaiso and surrounding community.

How the library is arranged:

The main floor of the library is home to adult and young adult books and movies.  Large print, movies, poetry, heritage and more. Fiction & Non-fiction books are available in the library on the main floor.  Also check out westerns, romance, biographies and history books.

Pre-Readers and Early Readers

Visit our fun downstairs children’s area.  Find a pillow or toddler size seat and grab a durable board book to begin your book adventure.  We will be adding to this collection with durable vinyl books, as well as educational toys that encourage language and social skills that promote pre-reading skills!  There is a section for those early readers to explore also!

Young Adult

Readers in this age group are invited to explore the young adult area on the main level of the library.  Many series are available in this area of the library to keep middle schoolers moving from one book to the next. 


E-books and digital audio books are available for FREE through OVERDRIVE

Resources for All ages:

Computer Services:  Laptop computers are available at the front desk for use in the library.  All computers are connected to WIFI and printers. 

Local Newspapers are available to read at the library.  Catch up on your local sports teams and stay current on community events.

For those interested in local history and genealogy, we have local newspapers and a heritage collection of memoirs and other items by local authors and fiction and nonfiction by Nebraska writers or about Nebraska and the region.

A “swap” rack  is located just inside the library foyer and is accessible 24/7, even when the library is closed.  This is a special rack of books that are left by community members so that other community members can take a book home.  This is a constantly changing book shelf of paperbacks.  Take one/ Leave one is about community supporting community.

The Library Drop Box is located on the corner of W 2nd and Pine streets, just outside the library.  You may return books and library correspondence here when the library is not open or when you are too busy to come inside.

Reference Help is available, of course. ASK THE LIBRARIAN — in person or by phone or email (see the “CONTACT US” page) — and we’ll do our best to locate the information and items you’re looking for.
