History of the Missouri State Library

Other Libraries of Missouri Government

Missouri Supreme Court Library

The entity established by law on January 22, 1829 was what is now called the Missouri Supreme Court Library. Up until 1946 this library was known as the Missouri State Library while the current Missouri State Library held the name Missouri Library Commission. This renaming occurred by provision of Senate Bill 369, a Legislative Act of the 63rd General Assembly. The Supreme Court Library offers reference services for members of the judicial bench, general assembly, lawyers and the public.

Missouri Legislative Library

In 1909, H.B. 173 of the 45th General Assembly enacted legislation to establish "the library of the general assembly of the state of Missouri." This library is charged with documenting the work of the Missouri Legislature and providing aid to members of the general assembly.
