Altamont Public Library
Altamont has had a Public Library since 1908--the first being started by Mrs. Mabel Jewell. The location changed from time to time, until it found a permanent home in the Municipal Building in 1968. By the late 80's the library had outgrown it's home and a new location was found. In 1991 the library moved to the former Torbeck building, also the one time location of Eckhardt's, on the corner of Washington and Third Streets.
