Library History

The Richland Public Library, founded in 1938 by the Woman's club, started with 200 books to loan to the community.  Since then, our community has grown to approximately 580 people and our library's collection has increased to over 10,000 books, magazines, videos, DVDs, and books-on-CD. 

A new library building was constructed in 1977 with a meeting room available for public use.  We also offer the use of three public internet computers and wireless access.
