The Gallatin County Public Library opened in 1978 with less than 8,000 books housed in a remodeled laundromat on West Pearl Street in Warsaw, Kentucky. Today our library is a beautiful 6,800 square foot building on West Market Street that contains 21,000 books along with scores of videos, CDs audio tapes and several computers with Internet access.
The library's inception followed years of hard work in the 1970s by original board chairman Charles Warnick with members Mary Evelyn Beverly, William Coates, Doris Combs, Barbara Liggett and Richard Rider. Each of these individuals along with regional librarian Phil Carrico and former Gallatin County Judge Clarence Davis shared a vision of a free public library in Gallatin County. It's due to their efforts that today, Gallatin County enjoys one of the most beautiful libraries in the Commonwealth - one that has served as a model to many others in the area.
Located in its temporary location for six years, construction on the current library on West Market Street was completed in 1984.
