Brief History:

The Ladies Library Association was established in 1895 with 125 members. Our current library was organized in 1914 and dedicated in 1915. Andrew Carnegie donated $10,000 for the building, and the Ladies Library Association contributed between 1,400 and 1,500 books. Additions to the Carnegie building were built in 1989 and 2004. The library currently houses over 65,000 volumes and is automated for better use of the collection.
