Our History image

Our History

Today’s Carroll County Public Library had its beginnings in the Carrollton Women’s Club House on Sycamore Street during the last half of the 1940s. It started with volunteers pooling their resources and time to create the first version of public library space in Carroll County. This continued as a small, volunteer-based program throughout the 1950s and 1960s. In 1975, the voters of Carroll County adopted a local tax to support the formation of the Carroll County Public Library Commission. Since that year, we have done our best to be the most responsible steward of our community tax dollars. The library as we have come to know it was created in 1981, when the first library was built on 136 Court Street. This building was maintained and served its community well and in 2007, the 6,000 square foot building was renovated and doubled in size. In 2019, land adjacent to the current building was purchased and will be developed to set up generations of Carroll County residents for the best library services possible.
