The library was founded in 1864. They moved to their new location at 88 W. 100 South in 2007 having been on South Main for 25 years.

The rainy day celebration included a juggler, a magician, carnival games, a photo booth and cake. Children were invited to go on a library scavenger hunt and participate in a bookmark contest.
