About the library

The J. Hoyt Hayes Memorial Troutman Branch Library is a cooperative effort between the Town of Troutman and the Iredell County Public Library. Citizens for the Troutman Library, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, was incorporated in the fall of 2004 to raise funds for a library building in Troutman. The group raised over $700,000 for the library. Construction of the library began in 2009 and the library opened to the public in May 2010.
