Ouachita Mountains Regional Library

The Montgomery County Library and the Polk County Library formed a new regional library system in 2010. The new regional library is called the Ouachita Mountains Regional Library.

The offices are located in the Montgomery County Library in Mount Ida. Because Montgomery County Library is a member of the OMRL , we have been able to expand our services. OMRL (870) 867-3812.
