Welcome to The Blythe Library
AT THE COMMONS
Our Mission: Building connections, broadening horizons, sparking curiosity and connecting our community through literacy and learning.
Our vision is an educated, connected community of readers, learners, doers, and dreamers.
The City of Blythe's Library vision began in 2010, with a group of dedicated volunteers and grassroots fundraising, under the leadership of Mayor Patricia Cole.
The purchase of The Blythe Library and Commons site, as well as its historical rehab was one of many projects of former Mayor Brent Weir and former Council Woman, Cindy Parham.
Through major changes, including three Mayors, various building plans, and over 8 years, the vision finally became reality with the library’s opening , in July of 2019, under former Mayor Phillip Stewart.
In January 2022, under a new library board, council members, newly elected Blythe Mayor, Curt St. Germaine, and along with a thriving Friends of the Blythe Library group, The Blythe Library is once again dedicated to being the center of our community.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
The Blythe Library is not funded by Richmond County, and only partially or by the City of Blythe. We currently rely on fundraising and donations. Please consider making a onetime donation, or a monthly sponsorship of $10. We are also seeking $25 quarterly donations for our "Crafturday" program.
Please make a donation: We can't read in the dark! Help us keep the lights on.
