About Palm Beach County Library System

Visit one of our 17 locations located throughout the County for entertainment, education, and exploration. We offer materials in many formats to suit your needs. We have books in hard copy, paperback, large print, downloadable, and audio formats. You can borrow DVDs and music CDs. Attend one of our cultural events, computer classes, musical performances, or meetings.

Our professional research specialists can help you find the information you need for your research paper, business venture, family history, and medical condition. If you can’t make it to one of our locations – then check out our online resource and outreach services. We have eBooks, magazines, newspapers, and research sources on our website. The Bookmobile travels to more than 40 stops a month and we offer outreach services to those who are visually or physically unable to visit the library.
