1969 Library, Potsdam, New York

[LIB11093] - In the 1970s, the Village board conducted a needs survey to accommodate and study the expanding, vital and "bursting" library and a master plan was developed. The decision was made to move the library to the Civic Auditorium. The auditorium historically housed the "gun house" where armaments were stored, and served as the Town Hall and Opera House. Renovations began June, 1975 and a ribbon cutting ceremony took place on December 20, 1976. [Website]
