HISTORY


First fundraisingFirst library fundraiser held in 1891. They don't look very cheerful, but our library is proof that their efforts paid off. (Click photo to enlarge.)



Library 1914 with fountain This photo was taken circa 1914. If you have information as to the whereabouts of the fountain, please let us know. (Click photo to enlarge.)



Book Week 1946This photo was taken during National Book Week, 1946. Storytime has always drawn a crowd! Note the two big windows above the fireplace. They were closed up when an addition was built in 1954. The windows were restored during our renovation and now the light is shining in. (Click photo to enlarge.)


Library 1914This 1914 photo of the library shows the doors before the bookdrop was added. They are narrow, but symmetrical. (Click photo to enlarge.)
