Description
By 1972, the Carnegie Library on Lincoln Street in Roseville could no longer accommodate the growing population of the city. A group of library supporters gathered on August 22, 1972 in the basement of the Carnegie, at the request of head librarian Helen O'Connor, to discuss a solution to the ever-growing problem of overcrowding. From that meeting, the Friends of the Library organized to persuade the city to build Roseville a new, badly needed library. The Friends of the Library Collection is arranged in eight series: 1. Correspondence, 2. Meeting Records, 3. Financial Records, 4. Legal Documents, 5. Scrapbooks, 6. Ephemera, 7. Publications, and 8. Media. Items span the dates 1972 to 2008.
