The original Cabell County Public Library, on the northeast corner of 5th Avenue and 9th Street, is now occupied by the Huntington Junior College. According to the Cabell County Public Library website, "Plans to establish a library in the city of Huntington were begun in late 1897 and a resolution by the Ministers Association was adopted in 1898 to open a public library. In 1899, books were collected for the establishment of a library and in late 1901, a room was leased for the library in the Florentine Annex. On March 1, 1902, the library was opened to the public. That same year, Andrew Carnegie donated $25,000 for a new building. On July 27, 1904, the new library was opened on the corner of 9th Street and 5th Avenue." The library dedicated its current building, on the northwest corner of 5th Avenue and 9th Street on Nov. 30, 1980. Date is unknown. Thanks to Jim Casto for the identification.
