We have a full run of the North Scott High School Yearbooks from 1959 - present.
We have town histories for most of our service area.

We have additional branches in Blue Grass, Buffalo, Durant, Princeton and Walcott. The library system also has a traveling Bookmobile. The headquarters is located in Eldridge.
The Scott County Library System started as a bookmobile in 1950. The vehicle they used was a World War II army jeep. It was founded by Edna Spies who wanted to bring books to rural children.
