History

Founded by the Child Study Club, the Huron Public Library opened in February, 1933, in an upstairs room on Main Street in Huron, Ohio. In 1943, the Library moved to its present location on Williams Street, then a school building owned by the Huron Board of Education. The building and the land fronting Center Street were subsequently purchased by the Library Board of Trustees in 1953. Additions and renovations were done in 1961 and 1978. The addition and renovation of 2000 - 2002 has created the Huron Public Library of today.

The Huron Public Library is a school district library with its Board of Trustees appointed by the Huron Board of Education in accordance with Section 3375.15 of the Ohio Revised Code.
