Celebrating 100 Years of the Remington Library
Come celebrate 100 years of the Remington Library. Join us for an Ice Cream Social and Open House at the Remington Library on Thursday, June 6 from 7-8:30pm ESE (or until ice cream runs out).
Currently displayed at the library are books popular in the last 100 years, historical items, and a scrapbook of the library history.
The library opened its doors June 1, 1913 in the north room of the Howard Furniture store. The Carnegie building was opened May 30, 1916. On April 24, 1961 a fire broke out in the early morning hours which destroyed the entire building and all of its contents. A new library building was built on the same site and opened in 1964. A community room, the Ray & Fern Tobias Center, was added and the rest of the library remodeled and dedicated on November 3, 2002.
