Our Website Through the Years

Scott County Public Library has a long history in the county. We used to be on Main Street and have four parking spots out back. In 2000, we transitioned to a larger building with more parking and more services for our community. It has been over 20 years in our new building serving a community we love.  

You may notice that our website looks a little different than before. We have improved our website to help you find all the resources that you need online during this time. Our website has gone through many changes over the years.

Scott County Public Library Archived Website in 2001

In 2001, our website looked very different. Things were a little more condensed, but we still had a catalog you could search. We didn’t have as many online resources and e-books weren’t even a thought yet!  

Scott County Public Library Archived Website in 2007

In 2007, our webpage got busy and maybe a little crowded with all the information we wanted to give you. However, that was the year we also added Wi-Fi to our building!

In 2011, you can see we started adding more electronic resources, including audiobooks and eBooks that you could download.
