The Russell County Public Library system has branches in Lebanon and Honaker. The Public Library provides free services to Russell County residents and persons working in the county.

The library system holds over 50,000 materials including books, compact discs, DVD and Blu-ray videos, and books on CD. In total, over 40,000 items were checked out of the system during the fiscal year 2014-2015. In addition to these items, thousands of people entered the library to utilize print and electronic reference resources, access the Internet through the Library’s fiber-optic connection, enjoy state-of-the-art Wi-fi service, participate in computer and Internet training, view a Library exhibit, or attend one of the Library’s many events.
