Significance: The Paola Free Library was designed by George Putnam Washburn, a prominent Kansas architect who designed 13 of Kansas' 105 courthouses.

The building serves as one of the cultural centers in Paola, and the library serves patrons from the surrounding countryside and villages as well as the citizens of Paola.
