History

The original Acworth Library was sponsored by the Carrie Dyer Women’s Club in the early 1900s.  The Club operated the library until 1963 when it joined the Cobb County-Marietta Public Library System.  In 1967 the Library System opened a new building on the same street as the Club House.

Today, the Acworth Library is a vital part of the whole community.
