From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The North Dakota State Library is a government operated library in the U.S. state of North Dakota. Located in the state's capital city of Bismarck on the capital grounds, the library has been in operation since 1907.



The State Library was established as the Public Library Commission in 1907, and it occupied a single room in the North Dakota State Capitol building. In 1909, the library's name was changed to the State Library Commission. In 1936, the library moved to the Liberty Memorial Building on the Capitol Grounds, which is where it remained until 1970. At that point, the library moved once again, this time to the Randal Building north of the city. The agency's name was changed to the North Dakota State Library in 1979, which is still its name today. In 1982, the State Library returned to the Liberty Memorial Building, its present location.[1]


The State Library specializes in information services to state agencies and to the general public. Its goals, as stated on its website, are to serve as a leader in the library and information field, promote and advocate library awareness, provide and develop library and information services statewide, and achieve customer satisfaction.[2]
