About our Library
The city established its first library in 1975. At that time the library was a small room in city hall and was identified as the smallest recognized library in the state. The second library building was constructed in 1980. On July 21, 2014 we opened our new spacious 7500 square foot library. The new library is modernized with vibrant colors, computer work areas, comfortable reading chairs and a beautiful children's area with a large mural painted by a local artist.
The current Library has a collection of over 16,500 books. The books include best sellers, biographies, westerns, audio books, large print and reference. In our juvenile section we have numerous AR books and non-fiction books available for any school assignment. We also have a great selection for the youngest readers. Now we offer the Online Book Catalog as well as E-Books for your convenience.
The Library has 15 computers available to the public with internet access and printing capabilities. We have access to the Alabama Virtual Library through the State of Alabama Library System in addition to the Homework Help site; and Alabama Job Links.
