Library Mission:

To support the growth and creativity of an engaged, informed, and connected community. 

The Library and the Carnegie Center for Art and History, a branch of the Library, have long been important pillars in our community. Often known for being warehouses of resources and materials we have evolved into much more. The Library (includes the Carnegie Center) is continually embracing and investing in new technology, expanding services through outreach, providing opportunities for continued education, and contributing to community workforce growth. The Library’s focus is to move away from the idea of just good enough to a new model of providing great service, striving for excellence in meeting patron needs and becoming a vital community center.

Library History

Libraries in New Albany can be traced as far back as 1855. The local school board saw the wisdom of establishing a permanent public library in 1884, which opened a year later in the first of five different locations.

The current Carnegie Center for Art and History was the fourth home of the Library, which opened in 1904. This was made possible by a generous grant from the Carnegie Foundation. There were 2,100 registered patrons and 11,000 books in 1905.

Flash forward more than 100 years and the Library has become independent from the school system and serves the whole county.

Serving 75,000 people, and with a circulating collection of 400,000+ items, the Library has become a multi-faceted, computerized cornerstone of our community’s fabric and heritage. The current library building opened in 1969 and underwent major renovations in 1998.
