The mission of the Abilene Public Library is to provide materials, services, and programs to help community residents obtain information which meets their personal, educational, professional, and recreational needs.
The Abilene Public Library has three locations to serve our community - Main Library Mockingbird Branch and South Branch, with the South Branch being recently relocated into the Mall of Abilene. It is our goal to raise community awareness and provide a welcoming place for people to utilize. As a 2017 winner of the Achievement of Excellence in Libraries Award, we strive to showcase the importance of learning and literacy through our wide range of programs for all ages and interests, presentations, displays, and many other avenues to engage patrons. Community involvement is paramount to our continuing to provide the excellent services our community expects and deserves. The Abilene Public Library wishes to encourage any interested person to volunteer and be a part of something amazing.
