The Blythe Library


Our Mission and Vision

 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. 


It Takes a Village


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 8 years, the vision is now a reality. 

The current Blythe Library Board, and Mayor Phillip Stewart, would like to thank those past and present for their support and hard work. 


Thank You

 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, or by the City of Blythe.  We currently rely on fundraising and donations.  Please consider making a one time donation, or a monthly sponsorship of $10. We are also seeking $25 quarterly donations for our "Crafturday" program.

Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, The Blythe Library and Commons building will be closed until the end of April or until further notice.  This is in direct response to the Order for no more than 10 persons to be gathered and hopes to prevent the contamination of buildings and the spread of the coronavirus.
