The Middleton Public Library is the heart of the community, where citizens are empowered to discover, imagine, engage and achieve in an environment that cultivates learning, curiosity, collaboration and creativity.
The Middleton Public Library began in 1960 with a collection of donated books that were loaned out by volunteers from City Hall. The library remained in the City Hall until 1973, when it was moved to a former power substation donated to the city by the Idaho Power Company. In 1982 the library moved across the street into what is now known as “the old library,” a former seed mill donated by the Simplot Company. This building served the community well, but with the growth of the city and the increased need for library services, a new building was needed. In 2009-2010, with money allotted to us from the City, money from various fundraisers, and with funds generously donated by patrons, we built a new library that doubled the space we used previously.
