History:

The Livermore Community Library was founded in the 1950s by the Livermore Woman’s Club and the City of Livermore. The Library was moved to its present location in 1984 and was funded by the City of Livermore with support from the Livermore Woman's Club. The Library is approved as a 501(c) (3) foundation that can receive tax exempt donations to fund and enhance its purposes for readership throughout the community.

The building housing the Library is a historic building.  It has housed a Barber Shop, Soda Shop, retail Television Sales store and the Livermore Post Office. 

In 2008, the McLean County Fiscal Court received a $100,000 state grant to aid in getting the Library up to standards set by the Kentucky Department of Libraries.  An elevator was installed and four (4) new computers were added.  The lower level of the Library was repainted; new carpeting installed; and shelving was rearranged.  All of the books were culled and many new books were added to the collection, providing a wide variety of subjects from which to select.  The Livermore Woman's Club completed the process of re-sorting through all of the books and replacing them on the shelves, according to approved library standards.  Additionally, the second level of the Library features a Museum displaying artwork including paintings by local artists and exhibits of historic photographs.
