The first library building was erected in 1921. Seven years later a community house was added to the facility. During World War II, the U.S.O added a back room to the building. In 1976, the local organization became a state-affiliated library under the auspices of the West Virginia Library Commission and adopted its new name -- White Sulphur Springs Public Library.
As the years went by and the library continued to grow, the original building became inadequate. In 1987, a new building was built on the same site. This 5,000 square foot facility is still in use today.
