The drive to establish a county library in Crosby began in 1921 with the first collection of 87 books arriving on January 22, 1922. The library grew throughout the years with the help of the community and the Crosby Friends of the Library. The library building as we know it today was dedicated on October 8, 1987, and was more than five times the size of the older building on Church Street with an additional three staff members. The library closed its doors for renovations in 2006. A Young Adult section and a mural by artist Cindy Lee were added. In 2017, the library was renamed to Crosby Edith Fae Cook Cole Branch Library to honor the local historian. The library also celebrated its 30 year anniversary in October 2017.
