Willows : Bayliss Library to celebrate 100 years

From ChicoER

” Someone once said if you have a library and garden, you have everything you need. While the Bayliss Branch of the Willows Public Library may not have everything the community around it needs, it does have 3,000 books. By the time it celebrates its 100th birthday next summer it will also have new gardens.In the 34 years spanning 1889 to 1923, the Carnegie Foundation funded the building of 1,681 libraries in 1,412 communities across the country.The Bayliss Library at Glenn County Roads 39 and W was built in 1917 and was one of 144 libraries funded by the foundation in California.”
