A visiting author shared a little dose of history tonight about the American Public Library.
The main focus of the presentation was on the first library built by woman, which consisted completely of women’s writings.
The Women’s Building Library began in Chicago in 1893, and had an impact all over the world.
Woman from the local women’s clubs who visited this library found that the key quality was decoration.
This movement shows the place libraries have had in the development of society and the need for society to have access to information.
