Branch History:
The Folsom Branch Library opened on July 19, 1950 as part of the Library Demonstration project funded by the State of Louisiana. The first branch was located in a small frame building on Broadway St. During the mid 1980s, St. Tammany Parish voters approved a bond issue, which made it possible to construct the present branch building. The branch was constructed on the site of the old Folsom Train Depot. The contemporary style, 2,000 square foot building opened in 1987.
