The Carter Memorial Library in Omro received its name from the memorial fund set up by the Grace Carter estate in 1966. The current facility located on 405 East Huron Street (South of Scott Park) was built in 1986. The Library is open 47 hours a week and offers youth reading programs throughout the year in the Alder public meeting room. The service area includes the City of Omro, six surrounding townships in the Omro School District, the Omro Care Center, Omro Community Center, and Fox View Housing apartments.
The mission of Carter Memorial Library is to provide our community with access to resources for personal enrichment, enjoyment and educational needs. Our library will place emphasis on young children’s interest and appreciation for reading and learning.
The Library is a member of the Winnefox Library System. In 1999 the Library became a member of the Winnefox Automated Library Service (WALS) group. This shared automated system enables the Library to deliver fast and complete service to its patrons.
