Mission Statement of the Lebanon Public Library:
The Lebanon Public Library is an active resource advocating literacy for the future that provides opportunities for cultural, educational and personal growth.
Established in 1904, the Carnegie Library in Lebanon was built with funds provided by Andrew Carnegie. Today, the Lebanon Public Library is funded by taxpayers in Ulen, the City of Lebanon, and Center Township. A seven member board of trustees sets the policies based on laws governing public libraries in Indiana. A major addition and renovation project in 1991 nearly quadrupled the library's space and made it handicapped accessible. The library has completed a second renovation and addition project. The lower and main levels re-opened and began serving the public in 2006. The new top floor opened in 2009 and houses meeting spaces, the Avon Audio/Visual Department, and a dedicated classroom computer lab.
