Roann Library plans for 100th year celebration

Plans are in the works for the 100th year celebration of the current Roann Public Library. In order to secure a building grant from the Carnegie Corporation, a working library had to already be in operation in the proposed community.

In an effort spearheaded by Martha Van Buskirk, a library was opened in the Roann School building in 1914. The library was started in a room at the school house with books donated by the community in a book shower. Other books were borrowed from the State Library and the library was open each Saturday afternoon. The high school class of 1914 built shelves to accommodate the books. Those shelves are now located in the library Indiana Room, which houses genealogical and local historical holdings at the library. Having fulfilled all the terms of the grant application, a grant of $10,000 was made by the Carnegie Corporation and the cornerstone for the new building was laid in 1916, with completion of the building following.
