Warren County- Vicksburg Public Library

The Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library was founded in 1916 with the help of funds from library philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. It was housed in a building at the corner of Monroe and South Streets. For many years, a separate branch housed a library for the African-American citizens of the community.
