LEE COUNTY LIBRARY
During the closing years of World War I, the people of Marianna realized the need for a Library. Several civil-minded women obtained permission to use several upstairs rooms of the ten-cent store located on the corner of Main and Poplar Streets. All books and services were to be donated.
After the war, a big achievement was made by the businessmen of Marianna a lot on Carolina St. was purchased and a two-room Library was built for a total of $400.00. The Library remained in these quarters until 1937. When the Elks Club needed money several Marianna Civic Clubs decided to help by making their building on Main Street a Community Center. The library sold their building and donated the money to them to use the building rent-free. The library remained in this building until 1990. The County then purchased the building next door to it and moved in it. The library remains at that location today.
