Welcome to the Creston Library!

 About this Branch

The Creston Library was established in 1923, being in the current location across from Creston School since 2003. We are one of the small branches in the library system, but provide the same services as larger branches. Being the heart of our small community, people not only fulfill their book, movie, and music needs here, but gather to spend time with friends and neighbors. We have reading programs for children and adults, and some great summer performances, with the financial support of our wonderful Friends of the Library group. Our motto is Welcome to the Little Library with the Big Heart! Please stop in and join our “Library Family”, or just to say Hello and see what we have to offer.
