The Scotlandville Branch Library is a publicly funded and managed library serving more than 220,000 residents of the city of Baton Rouge, the state capital of Louisiana, and a city on the Mississippi River. As an affiliate library of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library, the Scotlandville Branch contributes to the general collection and services of the entire county library system (EBRPL), which includes more than 1.6 million books and serial volumes, more than 53,000 E-Books, more than 62,000 audio files, and more than 127,000 video files, with a total circulation of more than 2.5 million items per year. In 1974, the Scotlandville Branch became operational, and sometime in August 2001, it was rebuilt for two months and then reopened. It is just one of the 13 branches, in addition to the main library, a book selling facility, and a number of bookmobiles, with more than 2.5 million visitors and more than 300,000 registered borrowers in total. The Black Heritage Room, with a unique collection of books and journals by African Americans, is a notable feature of the branch. The library also includes public computers and a conference room that can be divided into two separate areas for library activities and can accommodate 100 people.
