Fayette County Memorial Library provides equitable access to materials, information, technology, services, and programs to entertain, enrich, empower, and educate our diverse community.
In March of 1921, The Progress Club, Inc. of Fayette formed a civic and literary organization.
The members envisioned a library to provide the written word for the citizens of Fayette County.
A set of policies approved by the Fayette County Memorial Library's Board of Trustees determines the operation of the Library. Those policies can be found asked for at the Fayette County Memorial Library or found here.
One year later, this group of determined women opened the first library in a building owned by Dr. J.A. Branyon with 68 donated books. From the beginning to the present, the objective of the library has been to become a center of reliable information that promotes enlightened citizens.
