Lafayette County and Oxford Public Library

Overview

Originally located in an upper room of the City Hall in 1930, the Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library, which is a branch of the First Regional Library, moved to its first building on Madison Avenue in 1964, which now houses the district attorney’s office. It was the first integrated building in Oxford. In March of 1977, the Library moved to its present location at 401 Bramlett Boulevard into a new 16,300 square foot two storied building. An addition of 10,000 square feet, which includes a large auditorium and two extra meeting rooms was added in 1977.

The Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library is a joint venture between the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors and the Oxford Board of Aldermen with funding from both the county and city.

The Library is open Monday through Thursday from 10am to 8pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 5:30pm, and Sunday from 2 to 5pm.

The Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library is a member of the First Regional Library, a public library system serving, DeSoto, Lafayette, Panola, Tate and Tunica counties. Anyone who lives, works, owns property, or goes to school in one of the five counties is eligible for a free library card. Your First Regional Library card can be used at any of the thirteen branches in the system. The replacement cost for a lost card is $1.00. The fee for a non-resident library card is $20.00 per year.
