History of the Cobb Library System

Cobb County’s first public library was opened at the home of Sarah Freeman Clarke in Marietta. The first free-standing library building, opened on Church Street in 1893 and is named after Clarke.

Libraries were opened in Acworth and Austell in subsequent years, and in 1959 the town of Marietta and several other libraries in Cobb County combined to form a countywide system that launched the County Public Library of Cobb as we know it today.
