About us: The door to the Franklin County Public Library opens to a world of information and entertainment that includes books, videos, magazines and audio materials. The Library has a collection of 90,000 volumes and circulates nearly 190,000 items a year. The Library provides both in-house and over-the-phone reference assistance, interlibrary loan service, and quality children's programs. A variety of programs are offered for adults as well. In addition, the Library serves as a center for local history and genealogy materials. A Bookmobile serves the outlying areas as well as nursing homes and day care centers. The Bookmobile monthly schedule is published in local newspapers and announced on local radio stations.
