The Noble Public Library, 204 N. 5th St., provides local residents access to more than a half-million items in its collection, programming for readers of all ages and online resources that include access to several dozen databases.
The first “library” in the city was the Cleveland/McClain County Bookmobile, which was parked at the Noble Senior Citizens Center from 1982 until the grand opening for the Noble Public Library in 1986.
Since then, the library has gone through several upgrades, including an expansion project in 2005-06 that added the Coman Culbert Community Room, which, in addition to library programs, is available to community members and groups for sponsored events.
The library is part of the three-county Pioneer Library System. Anyone who lives, attends school, works or owns property in any of the counties (Cleveland, McClain or Pottawatomie) is eligible to obtain a library card.
