Founded in 1920, the DuBois Public Library founded by the City of DuBois to serve the Community of DuBois. From 1923 to 1975, the Library was located next to the Deposit Bank on East Long Avenue. In 1963, a separate Children's Library was established on the first floor of the nearby Pentz Building through the generosity of the Pentz Family. The present building was constructed in 1979 with funds raised by the community. The DuBois Public Library is supported by the City of DuBois residents, Sandy Township residents, and the State of Pennsylvania.
