Eagle Public Library was established as a volunteer operation in 1963. The library was housed in various locations. A building was purchased at 67 E. State Street in 1969 by the then Eagle Free Library District Library Board. After 1968 the library was funded by "Fundsy Auction" and the "Treasure Chest." In 1974 the library district was dissolved and the Library Board delivered a Warranty Deed for the library building to the City of Eagle in exchange for the city assuming financial support of the library. At that time the City Hall office was partitioned off in the building. The library was operated by volunteers until 1975 when the first librarian was hired. The Friends of the Library was established in 1981 for the primary purpose of raising funds to support library programs.

In the spring of 1998, the citizens of Eagle approved a bond for a new library to be located at 100 N. Stierman Way. The Eagle Public Library opened March 1999 in the new location to serve a growing community of over 11,000. Patrons may now check out videos, audio cassettes, CD's and DVD's, as well as traditional print materials. There are 32 computers for public use and internet access. Reading areas are available with over 200 periodicals and newspapers. The library provides a public meeting room that seats 100, a large conference room and three small conference rooms. Eagle Public Library offers a variety of programs for children and adults.
