GALLATIN COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY
ABOUT GALLATIN COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY
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 Gallatin county passed a library tax, and in 1984 the initial 5,000 square-foot West Market Street facility became a reality when a construction grant was awarded. 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 in 2012 it received a 2,715 square foot wing for additional meeting and staff space.
The library offers films, fiction, and nonfiction, as well as a Young Adult section, a Children's section, Meeting and Study Rooms, and a Reading Room filled with magazines and newspapers. Gallatin County Public Library belongs to the Hoopla Digital consortium which enables card holders to check out eBooks, movies, music and other materials online wherever there is internet access.
