Washburn Library History Part II

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

Former City Administrator, Pete Mann, will continue his saga of the library’s history: Washburn Gets a Carnegie Library. The building constructed for the Washburn Free Public Library & Reading Room was just ten years old when the library board applied for and received a grant from Andrew Carnegie to construct a new library building, a structure that has housed the city’s library for 115 years. The record book of the proceedings of the board of the Washburn Free Public Library and Reading Room, Washburn Times articles, and Lars Larson’s historical sketch of the community provide the basis for the story of the construction and operation of Washburn’s Carnegie library. Music: Steve Cotherman
