The State Library of Louisiana is Louisiana's state-operated library, located in Baton Rouge.[1]

History[edit]

The state created the Louisiana Library Commission in 1920. In 1925, the commission and the Carnegie Corporation established libraries throughout the state.[2] The library was housed in the building on North Third Street that was vacated by the Hill Memorial Library after Louisiana State University removed to a new campus south of Baton Rouge in 1926.
