Branch History:
The Pearl River Branch Library opened on June 23, 1950. Throughout the years the branch was located in several rented locations. The present branch was constructed with funds provided by a bond issue approved by St. Tammany Parish voters in the mid 1980's. The branch building was opened during 1987. The contemporary style, 2,000 square foot building was designed by J. Ashley Inabinet and the cost was $192,000.
