The McGrath Community Library celebrated its 75th year in 2017! The McGrath Community Library may be the OLDEST public library in Alaska!

McGrath's  Library holds a little bit of everything from best-sellers to classics, children's books to "how-to" manuals, magazines and regional newspapers. The Library is a not-for-profit organization and operates through the relentless efforts of volunteers, grants and donations. The "Alaska Room" is a treasure-trove of Alaskan literature, history, culture and natural history and a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The McGrath Community Library is located in the Cap'N Snow Center.
