About Us


Since December of 2002, the Tarkington Community Library has served the children, youth and adults of Tarkington Prairie. The library holds a wide selection of books and media for all ages, provides computer and Internet access and other services for library cardholders, houses a special section of historical artifacts collected by the Tarkington Prairie Historical Society, and hosts some terrific year-round programs for community members, including several kid-centered summer programs. For more information on the offerings and activities at the Tarkington Community Library, stop by or call during regular operating hours.

In April of 2017, Tarkington Community Library adopted a strategic 5-year plan for services growth and facilities expansion. Check out our 5-year plan here! Major goals for this year include updating policies and procedures and getting the library fully-automated. Expansion of services and hours is also being implemented with patron needs in mind. To provide feedback, feel free to contact us!
