About:Modern Brent-Centreville Library serves both cities in the southern part of Bibb County. The community library was first organized in 1949, housed in the Brent City Hall, and staffed by Brent Study Club volunteers. The library hired its first librarian in 1956. In 1973 a tornado destroyed most of Brent, including the library. It was later rebuilt at its present location on land provided by the City of Centreville. Jointly owned by Brent & Centreville, and centrally located, the current library building was occupied in 1982. Our Library is used by people from throughout the region. It is especially known for its excellent genealogical reference section.Contact:
