The Mifflin County Library began in 1842 as a paid lending Library. It became the County Library in 1942.

For 114 years the library was located at 13 East Third Street, which is now the United Way building. Its next home on Water Street has since been torn down. The library moved into its current location on North Wayne Street in 1974.
