Oil isn’t the only prized commodity in Midland, Texas. Since 1903, the city and its surrounding county have been graced by Midland County Public Library and its commitment to lifelong learning.
The library system is dedicated to making Midland a better place by providing information access to everyone. That vision is most obvious in the American Library Association and International Interior Design Association’s award-winning Centennial Library location, where technology and multimedia displays meld with forward-thinking initiatives including an open-access audio and video recording studio museum-quality exhibits, live music performances, an artist-in-residence program, a fineless borrowing system, and much more. The Texas Library Association recognized the multitude of innovations by naming Midland County Public Library Director John Trischitti III its 2014 Librarian of the Year.
Midland County Public Library circulates nearly half a million items per year, and its partnership with West Texas Digital Library ensures that eBooks and other downloadable titles are readily available for the estimated 295,000 Midlanders in its service area. The library also provides Internet access to all residents and visitors, regardless of whether they have a library card.
The Library Corporation is honored to support Midland’s unique outreach efforts with the Library•Solution® integrated library system. TLC’s devotion to customer support and ongoing product development ensures that Midland County Public Library has the freedom to embrace new technologies as it explores new and exciting ways to serve its community.
