Citizens Library was founded in 1870 by Dr. Francis J. LeMoyne and was located in the Town Hall for which the cornerstone was laid in 1869 by President Ulysses S. Grant. In 1904, the Current Events Club of Washington persuaded the Washington Borough Council and the Washington School Board to contribute equal sums yearly to the library, transforming it from a fee to a free institution.
The current building was dedicated in 1965. It is a handsome, traditional brick structure with departments for adults, young adults and children.
