Founded in 1894, the Franklin Public Library serves the communities in and around Franklin.

Franklin is a town of 6,500 people in rural Venango County that dates back to the 1740s. It was named in 1795 after Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), one of the country's Founding Fathers, and is the county seat.

The library is housed in a handsome, Colonial-style red brick building that was originally a residence constructed in 1849.
