- The Elon Public Library is a historic public library building at Camden and Younger Drives in Amherst, Virginia. It is a modest vernacular single story wood frame structure with a gabled roof. It was built in 1918, and was the Amherst County's first rural free library. It served as a lending library for the surrounding area until 1965, as well as a community meeting space and polling place. It was closed when the county dedicated a portion of the nearby school for use as a public library.The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2016. (read more...)
