Latta in Dillon County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Latta Library
This library initially served the Latta area and its schools, but in 1929 extended its service to all Dillon County schools. The cost led the library board to ask the county to provide aid. The county complied, although local control of library service continued. By statutory provision in 1973 a county library providing for countywide control was established; the Latta Library is the base of this operation.
Erected 1979 by Latta Rotary Club. (Marker Number 17-9.)
