History

In 1893 a Committee began work in Stirling to promote the formation of a free library. There had been libraries in the town before, with the earliest record dated 1617. One of the most notable was in the Athenaeum (The Steeple) at the top of King Street which opened in January 1817. 

Today

Stirling Central Library remains in the centre of the city and boasts the most visitors of all of our libraries. With a reference section upstairs, family history information, computer access, events and more, it's well worth a visit.
