Wilmington Public Library, Wilmington, Ohio


Members of the George Clinton Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, founded the Wilmington Library Association in 1899 and opened the "Wilmington Library" that summer with 500 books in two rooms on Main Street in a building owned by the First National Bank of Wilmington.

By their efforts and a $1,000 a year support levy from Wilmington village council, the library association secured a $12,500 grant from Andrew Carnegie, and in June 1904 the Wilmington Public Library opened on the site it occupies today. [SOURCE]
