History

The 1987 bond issue provided the funds for building this location, formerly known as the Central Library, which opened in September 1989. Before 1989 the library had been in temporary quarters at the old Marietta Post Office since 1963. The new library provided much needed expanded space with 64,000 square feet of floor space.

The current location houses not only the main library for the Cobb County Public Library System, but also the Library System’s administration and support services. On July 23, 2013, the Cobb County Board of Commissioners renamed the Central Library the Charles D. Switzer Public Library in honor of the longtime library trustee.

The Charles D. Switzer Public Library has over 300,000 items, with over 15,000 of them in the local history and genealogy collection known as the Georgia Room.
