General Information

Extension/outreach service includes delivery service of books and other library materials to homebound individuals. All residents of our three-county region may use library materials in any of our facilities, and participation in the PINES network allows our residents to borrow books from other PINES libraries in Georgia.

Public programming, notably pre-school story time and summer reading programs for school-aged children, is a regular feature of public library service. Public computer and Internet access are available as is computer-assisted basic English training in our computer lab.

The collection includes large print materials, audio books, music on CD’s, videos, fiction and non-fiction books and a limited collection of books in Spanish, especially in the life coping skills areas.

The Dalton Library’s Story

A library began in Dalton through the efforts of the Dalton Junior Woman’s Club in 1921. By 1945, a converted military ambulance purchased from surplus war stock served as a bookmobile which provided county-wide service. The current library, at the corner of Waugh and Cappes Streets in Dalton, was constructed in 1982 and includes a genealogy room, a computer lab, historical documents including local newspapers back to 1868, book and audiovisual shelving, a teen room, and a children’s department.
