Let me tell you, oh noble review reader, of a once great pillar of society called a library, particularly the Davies County Library. That's L-I-B-R-A-R-Y not L-I-B-R-A-R-Y, just a little FYI before we start. The library is like Amazon, but for only books. Books are like these pretty wireless Kindles made of paper. The library is kind of like a Barnes & Noble, but without a Starbucks and the expensive educational toys you are expected to buy for your friends' kids birthday. Now all libraries are not the same, some are old and some are modern. Some are grand and full of Baroque architecture like the Klementinum library in Praque, others are filled with Ikea furniture and act as a giant echo chamber for the voices children and professional wrestling loving librarians like the Davies County Library. However dear reader, a library should really only be judged by it's books... I guess. Let's cut the bull shall we... For you literary people, you will hate it. I hate it, I go there OFTEN, and I hate it. Only about 20% of the library has any thing that resembles literature… resembles is key here. The ground floor is nonfiction and reference, nothing wrong with that. The top floor is 40% children; kids need books, I get it. Movies, yes DVDs, make up about 20% of the top floor. Yes apperently the library is like an old Movie rental place, all the super hero movies and blockbuster failures you want. Don't ask for art films, they don't have it or care to. Who even has a DVD player anymore??? Stream you barbarians, stream! Next is fiction, about 40% of the top floor. Fiction, that tool long used to express and explore humanity. So... Teen fiction... Ok fine, they can't appreciate Shakespeare yet, and they aren't up to Tolstoy either. Teen fiction takes up say 10 of the 40% that is fiction. Next you have a lot of mystery novel; ok, if that's your cup of tea fine. Next is, "ADULT FICTION"... Basically just regular old fiction for people who can remember the 1990s. That doesn't keep parents from grabbing their running enfants and shielding their eyes; "No!!! don't look 'ADULT' books baby!". That's not the library's fault, it's just... Society's I guess. Poor sick society.... Anyway adult fiction accounts for around 35% of the top floor, making that 17.5% of the entire library devoted to the literary art! I know what you are thinking now; "Hey! book snob! You are missing some numbers...". Correct you are, my number savy review reader. That last 5%, you sure you want it? You do then? It's gonna hurt, ready? I'm sorry but it is my duty to report monsieur or madame, that the last 5% is composed of those tacky little paperback romance novels you still single aunt would read when she would come to visit you when you were a kid. You know the ones, the ones with those long haired shirtless dudes riding horses or holding women as a rotary fan blows their clothing around. I don't get it myself; I tried the whole fan thing, did nothing to spark my love life... Except that one time in the shower... However, I digress, yes I'm afraid the local library is simply a WiFi connection and a indoor playground now. On a personal note; I'm trying the whole starving writer thing past few months, with some success in some respected literary reviews. I go there to write, I just end up tinkering at home on things if I write there. Anyway, the days of the quiet library are gone in Owensboro; kids screaming, old men chatting about nothing, librarians talking about professional wrestling or who is getting fired. I honestly have started going to write on my days off or mornings off in the local café because it's quiter... Yes, the café with all its music and mirth is quiter... Except now I have a have a $50 weekly café bill.... So... Well...


Great collection. Staffed with knowledgeable, professional people. The genealogy department is outstanding with more information on some counties in the area than the county itself.

Snarky employees in an unfriendly environment, coupled with overzealous and ridiculous security measures. I can understand having guards there when OHS lets out for a few hours, but after that there's no reason why the Library should have them there. They're bored with nothing to do but nitpick at people for trivial things, in which I've witnessed first hand. The old Library was so much better than this newer facility. I've never talked to anyone who's lived in Owensboro for years that thought the new Library was an improvement over the old one. It lacks character, much like the employees who run it.

I have lived in more than 20 cites and towns in five different states and the Daviess County Public Library is, overall, the best of them all. The staff is friendly and helpful, there is something for anyone of any age, there are events held regularly, and it is a very clean establishment.

An amazing modern library. Complete with a wide array of computers, a genealogical research wing, a solar panel that helps power the facility, and children's rooms. The entire building is incredibly clean and the selection of books is incredible. It's quite possibly the best library in western Kentucky.
