Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library

The Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library opened its doors in the summer of 1994. The Cashiers community had started a community based all volunteer library in the 1980’s called Johannson Memorial Library. They felt that the area needed a full service library with trained staff, so they began a campaign to bring a branch library to Cashiers.

Through county and regional negotiations and fundraising efforts a beautiful native stone post and beam library was constructed. The family of Albert Carlton was the primary private contributor and a major force in bringing a branch of the Jackson County Library and Fontana Regional Library system to the area.
