Free Public Library, Lancaster, PA

On May 21, 1952 the Lancaster New Era announced that over half a million dollars was available to start construction of the new Lancaster Public Free Library. First the old library and the buildings on either side had to be demolished to make way for the new and current Lancaster Public Library. The old library was located in the former A. Herr Smith house on Duke Street and had been library headquarters since 1903. The cornerstone of the new library was laid on May 17, 1953. [SOURCE] [LIB3058]
