A full time director oversees seven capable, helpful employees. The library houses 56,732 bound books and periodicals, 1800 books on tape, 2237 movies, 623 music cds, and an excellent reference section. Many used paperbacks or double copies of hardbound books are loaned on the honor system with no penalties attached. Books and resources are also available through the Blue Grass Regional Library. The 7300 cardholders are credited with the majority of the annual circulation of 158,000 items, though many visitors are included in this number. A recycling of patrons' magazines is easily accessed in the glass entranceway of the library. The State of Tennessee provides the Tennessee Electronic Library database which is accessible at the library and on a person's home computer.

The library budget is governed by a board appointed by the county mayor who takes recommendations from the library director. New uncirculated books/movies/resources are always available for those who wish to honor others with a donation or a memorial.

The Gabard - Haynes Geneological Room houses all local newspapers on microfilm, an excellent historical records section, memorabilia from the three governors who were from Marshall County, and Dr. William Gabard's personal library. Ancestry.com and HeritageQuest databases are available on the public access computers at the library. HeritageQuest may also be accessed from a home computer. All books are electronically catalogued on the library's computer. Nineteen Internet accessed computers are available for public use.

The Marshall County Memorial Library Foundation has recently been established to handle larger donations and endowments. This charitable 501 (c) (3) organization is governed by a separate five member board who uses the funds to enhance what county appropriations provide. The Foundation recently purchased the Ancestry.com and HeritageQuest databases and a new microfilm reader'printer for the genealogy room.

Built in 1974 with several cosmetic renovations over the years, the library is a resource center for the Advanced Placement programs of the school system and for the Columbia State Community College Lewisburg Site.

Storytime is conducted year round at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, and a creative summer reading program is announced each spring for the many children who enjoy reading or want to improve their reading skills.
