Long Description:
Cartersville Library is an excellent example of the modern library avilable to citizens of Bartow County Georgia.

History of the Bartow County Library
In 1896 the Cherokee Women's Club started a library organization. In 1903 they built a new building downtown on Public Square, where the courthouse stands today, and after the unexpected death of Library Chairman, Mary Munford, the building was named the "Mary Munford Memorial Library of the Cherokee Club". The Library was made public in 1932. In the early 1960's the club turned the library over to a newly established board. In 1963 the Library moved to the Peeple's Homestead and the City took over the Mary Munford Building which had fallen into disrepair. The Library then joined the Tri-County Library System which included Bartow, Floyd, and Polk counties. After much growth, the library moved to the West Main Street location in 1980 and then the next year became independent of the Tri County system.

In July 2004 a new chapter in the life of the library began with the ground breaking for the building expansion. The expansion and remodel project will increase the size of the library from 17,333 square feet to 44,455 square feet and allow the Library to serve the residents of Bartow County in better and more innovative ways.
