Way back in 1948 my dad bought five shares in the Labor Temple at 5th and Main. Maybe that was the way the unions raised money to purchase the Carnegie Library, built in 1903. As a kid, I loved to go there and look for weird books to read - especially in the summer. My cousin, Marcheta, always laughed because I did find some strange books. Nothing like we have today but odd for the time.

  1. Carnige's did some great things with the Libraries! We have several in this area.
