Perry County has two public libraries: one in Lobelville (next to City Hall) and one in Linden (next to Linden Middle School, behind Perry County High School). Both libraries have books, DVDs and audio-books available for library customers to borrow.
The libraries offer computers and Wi-Fi for customers to use on-site. In addition, the libraries offer copying, printing and faxing services (black ink only, color is not available). Library cards are free and easy to obtain. Adult applicants need to show personal identification, and applicants under age 18 need parental consent to qualify for a library card.
