The Carrollton Women's Club selected as one of their goals in 1980 the establishment of a Library in the Carrollton community. Through their efforts and the generosity of Senator Elmon Gray and Mr. Horace Gray, the original library building in Carisbrooke was contracted to the county of Isle of Wight, rent free for 15 years in 1983. On January 10, 1984 it opened its doors as the Carrollton branch of the Blackwater Regional Library. It was staffed by the volunteers from the Carrollton Women's Club and other interested citizens during its first six months of operation. Currently the library has a paid staff but continues to use volunteers.
The Friends of the Carrollton Public Library are a non-profit organization devoted to supporting the Carrollton Public Library. The Friends' purpose is to foster closer relations between the library and the citizens of Carrollton and to lead in the development and improvement of library resources and services. This includes fundraising for library programs, materials, furniture, etc.
Please help your library by volunteering as a Friend of the Library! We are always seeking Friends, and are also currently looking for a Vice President, a Secretary, and a Marketing Coordinator to join the Friends' Board.
