Adult Programs and Services
ADULT PROGRAMS & SERVICES
De Soto Public Library’s mission is to educate, entertain, and empower our community, and our talented staff extend our mission by creating dynamic and informative programs that support literacy, financial security, entrepreneurship, and the arts.
Our staff can help you find the perfect book; we can also show you how to download a new issue of your favorite magazine, teach you to knit, or encourage you to try something new like painting or writing. We host game nights and social events for adults, and we show our Albany Pride with our local history programs and tours. We also partner with numerous organizations to offer programs that empower adults, like financial literacy and security, health seminars, computer literacy and much more!
