Special Services

Your library is more than just books. These additional services are provided by the Mesquite Public Library System.

Audio Books


Books recorded on compact disc are available at both library locations. There is something for everyone. Use your daily commute to listen to an audio book or listen while you exercise. Choose a favorite book on CD for the family driving vacation. The library also offers a growing collection of Playaways-small, portable devices preloaded with a popular audiobook. For listening on the go, that much and more is available in the Mesquite Public Library System’s collection.

Closed-Captioned Videocassettes and DVDs  


The library maintains a collection of closed-captioned DVDs for use by those with a hearing impairment. These are identified by distinctive labels on the video boxes.

Assignment Alert  


If you are a Mesquite ISD teacher, let the library help your classes successfully complete their assignments. The Assignment Alert form helps us to help you and your students. By submitting this form to us, we will be able to direct students to specific resources to help complete their work, and insure that relevant materials will be available and can be set aside for your students.
