Branch History:
The Ruth Camp Campbell Memorial Branch of the Blackwater Regional Library had its origins in 1926 & 1927 when the Women's Club of Franklin determined the need for a public library in the community. Miss Lizzie Mae Cutchin became the librarian in 1931 and devotedly served for nearly 50 years before retiring. At the beginning of her career she earned a salary of $10.00 a month and kept the library open four hours per week. Housed in many buildings throughout its history, the library made its latest move from the Pace House into a brand new building at the College Drive location in November 1992.
