Pocahontas County Free Library
Log Number: AL-00-04-0001-04
Strategically located throughout the County's 950 mountainous square miles, the four branches of the Pocahontas County Free Libraries are models for providing library service to rural Americans. As centers of activity in their communities, the libraries host groups such as scouts, business associations, town council, blood drives, a preschool playgroup, and after school programs. The libraries are cornerstones of civic engagement. They receive thousands of hours of volunteer service and substantial and steady local contributions. The library has worked hard to expand its physical as well as its intellectual resources. With support from local groups, the system built two new buildings and extensively renovated another building during the last ten years.
