GUYAN RIVER

Guyan River Public library is actually the second-generation library in the West Hamlin area. The previous building was opened in 1978 in Branchland and thusly named. The new building opened to the public in 2015 beside Guyan Valley Middle School. Classes frequently visit the library for materials.

HAMLIN-LINCOLN

Originally served by bookmobiles, the first storefront library in Lincoln County opened in 1972. A year later, an instant carousel was erected, and in 1977 an addition doubled the size of the building. However, the library soon outgrew that facility. In 1994, Hamlin-Lincoln County Public Library opened a brand-new building on 7999 Lynn Avenue. The library conducts library classes for schools in the area and has programs for all ages each month.

Hours of service are Monday – Thursday from 8-4
