Shelby County Public Library - Shelbyville, Indiana


We are excited to announce that updates to the library's property are in development! Construction is slated to begin in SEPTEMBER 2017. 

  • The library's annex, the Carnegie East Wing, will be fully renovated. The additional space will make room for an expanded Genealogy/History Dept., a Military Room, Railroad Room, Friends of the Library bookstore, and offices. 

  • A community plaza will be installed between the main library and annex.
  • The back parking lot will be expanded and the side entrance to the main library will be made a public access entry.
  • Along with changes to the facade of the property, the heating and air conditioning system will be replaced in the main library and roofing repairs will be made. 

BRICK FUNDRAISER: Book a brick and make a difference at the library. We are raising money to help complete the community plaza. Have a brick engraved for the plaza to recognize a family member, your business, a friend, an important date, or your favorite book!
