Troy Public Library and Historic Village

Cathy Russ

Library Director



The Troy Public Library serves as a center for learning, enlightenment and personal development for the community. Supporting the belief that freedom to read, view and know is the foundation to our democracy, the Library endeavors to encourage and provide access to the free expression of ideas, which is essential to a dynamic and informed community.

The Troy Public Library is an informational, educational, cultural and recreational resource for the community. The Library has many print and electronic resources available. We also offer job search assistance, computer classes, and art and cultural exhibits. Please take advantage of your Library. We are here to serve you, the Troy resident.
