Welcome to the New Madrid County Library. There are six branches located throughout the county, with the headquarters in Portageville, all under the direction of Susan Newman. We are proud of our library system, and we hope our patrons feel the same way.

Although each branch is different and some offer more options than others, patrons can choose from fiction and nonfiction books, ebooks, audio books, movies, and computers with internet access. Any item housed at one branch is available to patrons of any branch by request. We strive to make each visit successful so that everyone leaves with the needed materials or information.

We hope you enjoy your virtual tour of our library and look forward to seeing you when you visit one of our facilities in the future.

After five hectic years of retirement from Lord’s Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors.
While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he’s offered one, he decides he doesn’t want it. Maybe he’s lost his passion.
His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion—for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley’s brother, Sammy, still enraged by his mother’s abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim’s prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business.
All this as Wanda’s Feel Good Café opens, a romance catches fire through an Internet word game, their former mayor hatches a reelection campaign to throw the bums out, and the weekly Muse poses a probing inquiry: Does Mitford still take care of its own?
