A library is a collection of books and other media that is intended for use but not for sale.  Because the media can be borrowed at no cost via a library card, it is widely available to library patrons.  This Libraries directory includes library web pages for every State in the USA plus Washington, DC and certain populous Counties.  Each State and District page lists public libraries and institutional libraries located in that State or District, including their company or website names as well as their locations, phone numbers, and website links.

Before visiting a library listed herein, be sure to check its address, hours of operation, and appointment policy (if any) by visiting its website or contacting it.  The library may have moved or no longer be in business, and hours of operation may be irregular.

Each directory listing specifies the County in which the library is located as well as the database categories that are relevant to the listing.  Convenient links to adjacent State directories are provided at the bottom of each directory page.
