The Annie L. Awbrey Public Library

The purpose of the Annie L. Awbrey Public Library is to provide quality library service to all citizens of Roanoke and Randolph County through the development of the library’s collection, public relations, and cooperation with Cheaha Regional Library and the Alabama Public Library System.


Our collection consists of about 20,000 books, including encyclopedia and reference books. We subscribe to a variety of magazines and 2 newspapers. We have books for all ages and interests, including special areas for Genealogy, Civil War, Alabama, Accelerated Readers, Books on CD, DVDs, and a Paperback Swap Section. The Randolph County Law Library is also housed here for the convenience of the attorneys in the county and for patron’s in-house reference. Other services include public Internet access and a public meeting room for business or civic groups.


Proof of residence in Randolph County and a picture ID are necessary for the issuance of a library card. An application card must be filled out. A parent or legal guardian’s signature is required for children under the age of 16.
