Lilian Lindsey, who lived in the Vest-Lindsey House, founded the Frankfort Public Library. It opened on December 12, 1908, in the McClure Building, and was managed by the Frankfort Woman's Club until 1965. The library moved to the Old State House, then to the Masonic Building, and in 1925, to the Woman's Club Building.

The Franklin County Homemakers Clubs, in cooperation with the Library Extension Division, started a countywide bookmobile in 1955. The library & bookmobile service merged in 1965 and moved to the old post office, which was named Paul Sawyier Public Library in honor of the well-known artist. The new library opened in 2006.
