The Round Lake Library, originally known as the “The Free Library and Reading Room,” opened July 6, 1897 in the house at 31 Wesley Avenue, where it has thrived for the past 109 years. Initially serving the Round Lake Association and the Village of Round Lake after its incorporation in 1969, this historic gem has long been a cultural centerpiece of our community.
The library serves all localities in the Town of Malta. The Women’s Round Lake Improvement Society (WRLIS), the ladies’ civic and educational league which began as the “Kerosene Club” in 1896, was the catalyst behind the formation of the library, and it retains its administrative role, influence, leadership, and support of the library today.
