The Green Pond Library (officially the Eunice Kelly Worthington Library) is a community library located at 323 Presbyterian Church Road in Green Pond in norhern Bibb County. It was founded in 1995 by Bill Hubbard, a retired teacher on a 7-acre parcel donated by his uncle. The property includes a walking track, athletic field and gazebo. The library itself is constructed of two portable classroom modules joined by a cupola-topped central room. A third module serves as a used book and thrift store to support the library's $25,000 operating budget.

Librarian Lois White began working at the library in 2003 under the auspices of the West Alabama Regional Commission's part-time jobs program for seniors. Alice K. Harp also volunteers as a librarian.
