About PCLS

Dynamic, creative, and enriching programs are held at all the libraries for all ages. We offer an amazing collection of books and materials for research, education and leisure. Our purpose is to serve the public, meeting the needs of the community we serve through community outreach and engagement, delivering quality programs and providing excellent customer service.

History of PCLS

In 1914 the Park County Commissioners appointed the first board to form the Park County Library System. In 1916 a Carnegie Library was built in Cody and Librarian Mabel Wilkinson arrived to become the County Librarian for Park County. From this start a wonderful Park County Library System was created, with 3 libraries located in Cody, Meeteetse, and Powell.

PCLS Foundation

The Park County Library Foundation is a private 501(c)3, tax exempt entity composed of a board of up to 20 directors whose collective interest is to assist the library through its fund raising activities. Board members are ordinary citizens, professional and business leaders, and/or influential members of the community who devote their time and energy to further the well-being of the Park County Library System.
