History

On March 6, 1934, a library board consisting of one member from several clubs met at the school to form a public library in Madison.  Rev. McDonald, pastor for the Christian Church and also the Lions Club representative, became the first president of the board.  This group scheduled a book drive for March 12, 13, and 14.  Representatives from nearby school districts canvassed their localities for books and funds.  The library board canvassed the business district for donations of money.
