James V. Brown Library, Williamsport, PA


From the PA Grit newspaper, June 16, 1907:

"The throwing wide of the doors of the James V. Brown Memorial Library to the public, on Tuesday morning June 18th, at 9 o'clock, will be one of the most significant annals of Williamsport. For the first time in the history of the city the public will be offered opportunities for educational development, through the medium of the best books obtainable. The thousands of volumes in the James V. Brown Library furnish information on every subject worth knowing about, and all are at the disposal of those who would read and learn." [Thanks to the James V. Brown Library, you can read more history here]
