The Poplar Bluff Public Library began in 1915 at a meeting held in the home of Mrs. M.C. Horton, president of the Bay View Reading Club. The library was originally a subscription library and members paid $1 per year for membership. The rapid growth of the library created the need for a new building, which was completed in 1936. The Missouri Library Association held its three-day state conference at the library in 1936.
The library's recent renovation and expansion project was celebrated with an open house on Sept. 27, 1998. The $1 million expansion doubled the size of the library and created off-street parking and community rooms
