History: The Pleasants County Public Library is located on the banks of the Ohio River at St. Marys, overlooking the river and the nearby Hiram Carpenter Bridge. Founded in 1935 by the St. Marys Women’s Club, the library operated with a volunteer staff in borrowed quarters for nearly 40 years. In 1974, the library finally moved into its current facility on Lafayette Street. After major renovations in 1985 and 2000, the Pleasants County Public Library now serves 7,500 residents in the St. Marys area.
