Treasures sale to support library expansion
DeKALB – When Dee Coover, director of the DeKalb Public Library, asked if Mary Beth Van Buer and her committee would take on the community fundraising for the library expansion, the committee eagerly agreed.
The committee decided that a Community Treasures Sale might be something they could undertake. They approached all of the clubs and organizations in the city and were pleased with the result.
One of the participating groups, the Library Whist Club, is credited with petitioning the city council in 1893 to create a public reading room, which became the DeKalb Public Library. This club still functions today.
