The Prescott Public Library was formed in 1895 and since then there have been a number of changes to our building and services. We offer traditional library services, programmes and special events as well as community services. Thanks to our many volunteers, we have been able to maintain and upgrade the inside of our building to keep it vibrant and inviting to all!
