Parts of Carroll County are served by libraries through direct property tax support, and one town and township (Burlington) support a library through indirect tax support. Several townships in the county do not have tax-supported library service, but they can purchase library cards from the three public libraries. The Library District Map shows areas served through direct tax support.
The libraries offer books and other media for lending and reference, Internet access, and various programs that are detailed at their websites and in a weekly column in the Carroll County Comet. All the libraries offer meeting rooms as well.
