In 1987 the Geraldine Cooke family donated the former Harness Shop Gallery building to be used as the public library. In 1995 the library, which was actually two township libraries, were each converted to district libraries, merged into one library, and then renamed the Piper City Public Library District. A special program for children is held usually in the fall and the spring, along with a summer reading program. Since becoming a district library, newer technology has been added, including a fax machine, microfilm reader/printer, and a computer for public use.
