Sabina Public Library in 1917 was initially started by the donation of books from the people with a balance in the treasury of $252.59. The Sabina Public Library officially opened its doors to the public on September 1937 at Sabina School. A teacher named Jean Gallagher was the first librarian. After a long struggle to build a library building owned by the library both Dr. Lang and Margaret Parrett died and they left most of their estate to the library with the administration of The National Bank and Trust. In 1993 and 1994 an addition was made to the library enlarging all areas making the library even more usable.  There is a large genealogy room (named in memory of the Beams), a computer room and an area which can be closed off for children's programs.  Programs are held for children and adults. The library also has  extensive video and audiotape holdings. In their goal to offer a combination of services this library offers programs such as the
Story Hour Program, Quilting Group, Scrap booking Class, Merry Money Program, and the
Appraisel Program.

Wilmington Public Library of Clinton County was founded in 1889 by the Members of the George Clinton Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.
