Spalding Public Library History

Spalding Public Library was established in 1911.  There is very little known about the history of the library.  One story is that the library was located on the top floor of the city auditorium for many years. Spalding Public library is presently located on Main Street in the former bank building.  Any  information and documentation on the early Spalding Public Library history, would be greatly appreciated!!  Please e-mail:  debpritchard2013@gmail.com
