Tri-Township Public Library District was started by the Woman's Club of
Troy in 1976. These women were dedicated to creating a library in Troy. The
Library was supported entirely by donations, fundraisers, and volunteer
labor for many years. Today, the Library is largely supported by tax
revenues from portions of Collinsville, Jarvis, and Pin Oak townships. The
library houses a collection of approximately 40,000 items.
