Library

The Hebron Secrest Library is a historical focal point of our community. The library, styled in the Carnegie fashion, was built in 1921 from a bequest left by Lewis O. Secrest. In 2004 an addition was added to make the library handicap accessible.  Large oak beams and arched windows give the library it’s warmth and charm.

The Hebron Secrest Library is an accredited public library committed to being the cultural and educational center for our community. The library enriches lives of area children, teens and adults by providing quality materials, programs and services.
