Events celebrate library centennial
HINCKLEY – The Hinckley Public Library District has come a long way from its start in April 1913.
For the first 50 years, the library was supported entirely by donations and two bake sales per year. In 1963, voters passed a referendum to make the library tax supported. It has progressed through two name changes, seven directors since 1964, two relocations and a recent renovation. The library expanded its usable space by annexing the adjoining meeting room, tearing down a wall and turning it into a children’s room.
Work was completed just in time for National Library Week and the 100th Birthday Celebration, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 12 with Game Night for Grown-Ups, for anyone 16 and older.
