The Fort Branch-Johnson Township Public Library is comprised of the Fort Branch and Haubstadt service area. The library is committed to give access to information, developing programs and services for children to encourage good reading habits; and providing both recreation and educational materials to adults. The library is no stranger to this part of southern Gibson Co. The Fort Branch Library was established 1917 with the Haubstadt joining the system in 1982. A recent building project for Haubstadt expanded room and capabilities for new services in 2013. The board of trustees envision the library as an ever changing entity that is modern and advanced when it comes to the services that it provides to its patrons whether it is educational, technical or recreational. The board will support what ever measures to keep that environment.
