Our History

The Cabell County Public Library is located in Huntington, West Virginia, at 455 9th Street Plaza. In addition to the Main Library, there are seven branches located throughout the county. Cabell County's facilities also serve neighboring libraries located in Logan, Mingo, Putnam, and Wayne Counties. Computer and cataloging services are provided for libraries in Lincoln County.

Plans to establish a library in the city of Huntington were begun in late 1897 and a resolution by the Ministers Association was adopted in 1898 to open a public library. In 1899, books were collected for the establishment of a library and in late 1901, a room was leased for the library in the Florentine Annex.

Libraries are the best places to spend quality time for research and reading pleasure, and I am thankful for the presence of this great library located in downtown Huntington (Kanawha County), West Virginia.

I enjoy the different books and authors. To me it is like listening to people express themselves as whole developing persons. So that humanity will be remembered long after gonedays but also the maybe days. The attendants are very courteous and so helpful.

The staff at the library are very professional and dedicated. They are doing a great job keeping the library relevant in an increasingly digital society. They have an active and excellent children's program. Having the office of the Information & Referral Service and a staffed study room of the Tri-State Literacy Council is very convenient for those that use those services.
