History

The Leetonia Community Public Library was established by resolution of the Leetonia Board of Education in 1935. As a school system library the school board appoints the library board which then attends to the administration of the library independently. The library was first housed in the high school but was soon moved to its current site at the northwest corner of Walnut and Main. The library moved into the rooms once occupied by the Council Home Company and the building was owned by the Knights of Columbus.

The library flourished and eventually purchased the building in 1986.The first renovation of the facility was completed in 1989 modernizing the collection and staff area as well as leveling the ground floor from three levels to one. A second renovation was completed in 2000 which modernized the second floor creating meeting and office space as well as more storage. In September of 2004 the library was able to purchase the 6 acre lot once occupied by the high school and football stadium. Soon after the library board voted to embark on a campaign to build an all new facility on the newly purchased property.
