History

Library History

The first Gallatin County Public Library Trustees, appointed in 1976, sought state assistance to develop a county library. In 1978 the first library opened in a remodeled Laundromat on West Pearl Street.

In 1981 the county passed a library tax and the initial facility of 5,000 square feet became a reality when a construction grant was awarded in 1984. Modeled after Thomas Jefferson’s home in Virginia, Monticello, the library has become a county landmark.

In 2000 the library added an 1,800 square foot Children’s Wing and added a 2,715 square foot wing in 2012 for additional meeting and staff space.

The library offers an Adult section, a Young Adult section, a Children's section, Meeting and Study Rooms, and a Reading Room with fresh, hot coffee filled with magazines and newspapers available for reading and quiet relaxation. Gallatin County Public Library belongs to the Kentucky Libraries Unbound consortium which enables card holders to check out books, music and other materials from any location that has the Internet!
