The Middlesex County Public Library dates back to 1915, when fifteen ladies founded a book club with the aim of sharing and enjoying the pleasures of reading together. When the books were borrowed and returned, they were signed on the fly leaf, and some of the original books can still be found on the shelves of the Middlesex County Public Library today. In 1927, the Library received its official charter. In the town of Urbanna, it was located in the Middlesex County Bank building. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) founded a library in Deltaville in the 1930s, but it was closed down in the 1940s. Volunteers reorganized the Deltaville Library in the 1950s, and it was incorporated in 1985.
In 1987, the two libraries combined to form the Middlesex County Public Library, Inc. (MCPL), which is one of Virginia’s eleven independent public libraries. The Urbanna and Deltaville branches house a combined collection of over 36,000 items, including rare books, a comprehensive collection on Middlesex County history, children’s books, and audio and video recordings. Total circulation in Fiscal 2001-02 was over 50,000, with over 37,900 patron visits at the two branches.

The Middlesex County public library dates back to 1915, when fifteen ladies founded a book club with the aim of swapping books and sharing the joys of reading. When the books were borrowed and returned, they were signed on the fly leaf.
In 1927, the Urbanna Library became a legally recognised entity. In the town of Urbanna, it was first located in the Middlesex County Bank building. Before relocating to its new Grace Street site, the Urbanna Library was located in the Virginia Street building, which is now occupied by the Middlesex Women’s Club, and then the Old Tobacco Warehouse.
The United States Works Administration (WPA) founded a library in Deltaville in the 1930s, but it was closed down in the 1940s. Gazelle Ingram was the librarian at this library, which was housed in Ed Gemmell’s grocery store. The intersection of Crittenden Road and Route 33 was where it was. The Deltaville Library was reorganized in the 1950s by two ladies who drove around town with books for circulation in their cars. It was resurrected in the 1980s by a group of volunteers who were able to secure space in the Redman Building.
