Welcome to the Nobles County Library
The Nobles County Library encourages the love of reading and the joy of learning by providing educational, recreational, and instructional services in a safe, friendly, multicultural, community-centered atmosphere, while reaching out to residents of Nobles County and the surrounding region.
The Adrian Branch Library is raising funds for a much-needed renovation. On April 19, 2016, the Nobles County Commissioners approved the project. Nobles County will finance the repair and remodeling of the library building itself. The fundraiser is for the furnishings of the library, such as shelves, tables, chairs, computer desks, check-out desk, items for the children’s area, etc.
On March 29, 2017, the Adrian Branch Library fundraiser reached its goal and more: $80,016! We want to thank all of our donators. This fundraiser was successful only because of the generosity of our donors.

Adults who are unsure about their basic computer skills now have a way to easily assess what they know, pinpoint what they need to learn and earn a certificate that shows employers what they know.
The Northstar Basic Computer Skills Certificate program, offered through a partnership between the Nobles County Library and Worthington Adult Basic Education, is aimed at helping adults acquire the skills they need in today’s workplace.
Anyone can access the modules and take the tests online at www.digitalliteracyassessment.org. At the end of each test, the user receives a page of results, which lists the skills that have been mastered and the areas that need improvement.
