The Frederick Public Library is a Carnegie Library that was established in 1915 with a gift from Andrew Carnegie of $10,000.  A.H. Krouse was the architect and the lot was donated by Cameron Lumber Co.  While the building was going up, civic organizations busied themselves with a series of book drives and money-raising entertainments to provide books for the new library, as a result of which 2,000 volumes were gathered and prepared for circulation.  The plans for the library building were approved in April, 1915 and the library opened in February 1916 and is still active as a library today with all the latest technology.  During the summer months the library hosts a reading series for the children of the community, emphasizing on broadening their horizons.

Today you can almost always walk in the front door to find a smiling face, people utilizing the computers and a fabulous selection of books for all ages.  The Library is open Monday-Thursday from 10:30am-6pm, Friday 10:30am-4:30pm and Saturday from 9am-12pm.
