About the Company

Library service in Sweetwater County began in the early part of the 20th century when residents in both Rock Springs and Green River worked to bring libraries to the area. Over the years, the Sweetwater County Library System has grown to include three main libraries and six rural branches and the Community Fine Arts Center. The library system provides service to the 15th largest county in land area in the United States.

The Sweetwater County Library System has six rural branch libraries in the communities of Bairoil, Farson, Granger, Reliance, Wamsutter and Superior. Service has continued in some of these communities since the 1940s.

The Sweetwater County Library System also provides Home Services for residents in outlying areas in Sweetwater County and to residents in Green River and Rock Springs who are confined to their homes due to health, age or disability.
