Crossville Art Circle Library

In 1898 the Art Circle, a local group of women that would gather to socialize, decided to collect and lend out books to the public from a room at the old Cumberland County High School (now the Military Museum). Due to its popularity, the first official Art Circle Public Library was opened in a former bank building in March 1939, and by 1975 the collection had expanded so much that a new building was built. In 2010, the collection had again expanded and needed a new home: after years of fundraising, the brand new ACPL building was opened just down the street from the 1975 building.
