Books and Reference

The Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library and its branches offer a complete catalog of books, media and reference materials for enjoyment and learning for all ages. Our catalog includes:

  • Over 150,000 print volumes 
  • Over 28,000 books on CD, Playaways, and DVDs from popular movies, new movies, documentaries, learning and more.
  • A considerable number of genealogy and reference materials, including Microfilm newspaper records

Start here with the online catalog , and you can reserve items, view your active holds and checkouts on your account, and register for a digital card.

We also have a digital library that extends our physical media that lets you listen to audiobooks, read books and hear music with only a library card number.

Our reference library includes resources to help with:

  • Genealogy
  • Local History
  • Car repair manuals (which can be checked out!)

Our genealogy tools and services help explore both online using our many genealogy databases and offline using our microfilm and local newspapers records. 

We're excited to help you find a new book, explore subjects, get you started in research and so much more... ask us anything!
