The first library in Crestview was started in the 1940s by Bertha
Henry in her home. From that humble beginning, the library moved
to a small empty store and remained there until it was replaced
by the first new building.
The new, 7,000 square foot location on East 90 was built in 1976
and named Robert L. F. Sikes Public Library in honor of Robert L.
F. Sikes, who served as a United States Congressman representing
this area for thirty eight years. That location was subsequently
sold, and the library was moved to our current 17,000 square foot
building in May of 2002.
With the extra space, we now have a beautiful story room for children’s
programming and a large meeting room available for public use. Additionally,
the library supports 24 high-speed Internet access public computers plus four youth computers.
The library staff cordially invites you to come visit
us for all your information needs.
