Webb City's Public Library was created in 1913. The library received a $25,000.00 grant from the Carnegie Corporation to construct the facility. The library was dedicated on January 1, 1915. It is constructed of native Carthage limestone in a Richardson Romanesque style. The architect acknowledged Webb City's dominant industry at the time by incorporating local mining rock in the entry façade.
The Webb City Public Library serves as a learning center for all residents of our community.
