History: Originally served by bookmobiles, the first storefront library in Lincoln County opened in Hamlin in 1972. A year later, an instant carousel structure was erected and in 1977 an addition doubled the size of the building. However, the library soon outgrew that facility, and 17 years later, a new $750,000 library opened in Hamlin. In 1978, the Branchland Public Library was added as a branch and 4 years later a second branch was established in Alum Creek. In October of 2015, the Branchland Library relocated and was renamed the Guyan River Public Library. The Hamlin-Lincoln County Library system now serves more than 22,000 area residents.
