Melissa Crenshaw
Branch Manager

Ware Shoals Library was first established in 1913.  The branch was housed in several locations including Katherine Hall, the First Methodist Church and the house that is now the Senior Center.  In 1999, the new library was built.  The Ware Shoals Community Library is very unique, not only are we a public library, but also a high school library with two circulation systems.

The Ware Shoals Community Library has computers, photocopier/printers and Wi-Fi. The Library offers programs for children, teens, and adults. Program descriptions can be found below.
