Mendocino County history: 1934 – A milestone for the Ukiah Library

From Ukiah Daily

” On next Monday the Ukiah public library will have completed twenty years of existence as a Carnegie library, following seven years as town library. It seemed a fitting time to remind the people of Ukiah of the growth of the work of the library and to make public its aims and hopes of future greater usefulness.As the Saturday Afternoon club had been the original movers in securing the establishment of the library in 1907, and had also aided largely in securing a lot and Carnegie funds for the building in 1914, the library board invited the women of the club to sponsor a twentieth anniversary celebration.This invitation was accepted, and in accordance with their plans, on next Monday the library will hold open house all day and every resident of Ukiah and vicinity is cordially invited to drop in and see what the library offers in services to its patrons.”
