The Smyrna Public Library is the only independent, city-operated library in the state of Georgia. Founded in 1936, the library has grown from an initial collection of a few hundred books to almost 100,000 books and audiovisual materials.

In 1991 the City opened a new 28,000 square foot facility. This nationally recognized building is based on the colonial capitol in Williamsburg. It features an open floor plan with large windows that provides a warm inviting atmosphere to 250,000 annual visitors.
