History of the Mary Esther Public Library

The Mary Esther Community Library was established in 1974. The original space for the library consisted of 585 square feet and was located in Town Hall. It later expanded to 810 square feet. In 1976 the library was renamed and became the Mary Esther Public Library.

In 1990, The Florida State Legislature provided a grant for a new library, which opened on March 9, 1992 at the corner of Christobal Road and Hollywood Blvd, its current location.

The Mary Esther Public Library is proud to have been a charter member of the Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative. Visit the City of Mary Esther Public Library Website.
