Flashback Friday Encore: Happy Birthday to the Arcadia Township Library

October 2nd marks 99 years since the opening of the Arcadia Township Library in Valley County. The library was designed by the Lincoln firm of Fiske and Meginnis. It was built with funding provided by the Carnegie Corporation. Additional funds donated by members of the Arcadia community and raised by the Arcadia Ladies Up-to-Date Club were used to purchase the building site and to furnish the library. The cornerstone for the building was laid on March 24, 1917. This dedication program comes from the NSHS County Files collection.
