The East Palestine Memorial Public Library selects, acquires, organizes, and preserves books and other material formats of contemporary interest and permanent value for the education, information, intellectual stimulation and pleasure of the entire community. It upholds the principles of intellectual freedom and the public's right to know by providing people of all ages with access or guidance to information or collections which reflect all points of view.
The East Palestine Memorial Public Library was first opened in the Chamber of Commerce building on January 28, 1920, with 500 volumes under the sponsorship of the Chamber of Commerce. The Library was maintained on a basis whereby the books were contributed or secured through cash donations. The listing and issuance of books was performed entirely by volunteers, and the space for the Library was given without charge. In January 1934, a new state law became effective, making it possible for the Library to secure funds from intangible taxes on stocks and bonds enabling the Library to begin growth.
