SML's History

The Sheppard Memorial Library system is composed of a main library, four branches and a bookmobile.  It is the countywide library system for all of Pitt County as well as the City of Greenville.  The main library was opened to the public on October 15, 1930.  The library was built with a $60,000 grant from Harper Donelson Sheppard, a Pitt County native and businessman who lived in Hanover Pennsylvania.  The main library was named in honor of Harper Donelson Sheppard's father William Henry Haywood Sheppard.  Primary funding for the public library system comes from the City of Greenville and Pitt County.  Other significant funding sources are the State of North Carolina and the towns of Bethel and Winterville.
