About Lithgow Library

Currently operating out of its temporary home in the Ballard Center, Lithgow Public Library has been the “people’s university” of the capital region since its founding in 1896. The library has traditional lending collections, access to free databases, e-books and downloadable audio books. It provides educational, recreational and cultural programming for all ages, and serves as a leader in promoting digital literacy in the community. Construction of the transformed Lithgow Library is anticipated to be complete in September 2016.
