About Us:

The Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library was established in 1917 and incorporated in 1941. The original building where the library now stands was built in 1964. The Main Library was expanded by 11,000 square feet and features a new research area, a more spacious area for the Arkansas and Genealogy collection, and a new Children's Library featuring the Friends of the Library Family Activity Center. Also added was the Haworth Room and an expanded browsing area that features current best sellers, newspapers, and magazines. In 1998 Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library and its branches celebrated 30 years of cooperation with the Poinsett County Libraries. Together, both library systems are known as the Crowley Ridge Regional Library.

I really like the public library although I didn’t feel comfortable around the staff.

VERY impressive selection of books on CD, as large as libraries in Chicago and Denver! Plenty of places to sit and read. I wish there were more tables to plug in and work on this laptop.

Employees are wonderful however the director of the facility set off my emotionally distraught friend by incorrectly enforcing a law he does not fully understand. He threatened her with police action. Causing emotional distress while her service dog was calm and under control. Thanks to the dog for her services which allowed only a half hour of decompression versus the whole day being ruined. An ableist director who has no care for mentally handicapped people.

It's a nice little place, but once in awhile it can become a bit on the noisy side which is frustrating. But overall​ it's a great library.📚📖
