“A library for the Community” was one of the first concerns of the “young Citizen’s Group” who began the library many years ago.
The library was moved from the basement of the Memorial Hall to the newly renovated old Post Office building in November of 1972. Thirteen years later in summer of 1985, an additional 500 sq. ft. was added on, this area accommodates the Junior readers.
Year 2000 saw another 1405 sq. ft. addition. This included a sun room and an area for the adult readers. The renovation also included a public bathroom and a new office.
