In April 1911, Judge J. R. Tolbert wrote to the Carnegie Foundation in New York city asking its help in establishing a library in Hobart. As a result of this appeal, the Carnegie foundation gave $10,000 to pay for a library building. The contract was signed on January 29, 1912 and the library was ready by September of that same year. The first librarian was Rev. J. B. Black and thanks to these historical efforts Hobart is able to offer many wonderful learning tools to the city and surrounding communities.
The library staff hopes that each visit to the library is a fun and positive experience to the public by providing programs for children and adults alike. Some of the services are internet access, fax and copy machines, income tax forms, delivery to shut-ins and nursing homes in town. There is a reading and discussion series for adults in the winter and a summer program for the children. The library offers over 25,000 volumes which include best sellers, westerns, mysteries, inspirational fiction, and large print books. Also available are audio books for adults and children, magazines and newspapers. The library board and staff are dedicatied to making the library a valuable and integral part of the community.
