For more than 100 years, the New Castle Public Library has worked to expand and introduce new services that enhance the educational and recreational needs of our residents. The library continues to play an important role in the Lawrence County area. Good libraries don’t just happen; they have to be planned, cared for, and guided through change.





From 1910-1925, the library was housed in a large room on the second floor of the Heilman Building (later known as the Haney Building) on East Washington Street, the site of the current Rite Aid parking lot next to the Community Y. After outgrowing that space, the library moved to the remodeled Hoyt Residence at the southwest corner of Jefferson and North streets in 1925 where it remained until its relocation to the Old Post Office Building on North and Mercer streets in 1938. The present-day library at 207 E. North St. opened to the public in 1981.

New Castle Public Library inspires lifelong learning and fulfills the educational, recreational, and informational needs of the community.
