Library History

Farmersburg Library has been in different locations along Main Street.  It was over Hammond's Garage, which meant climbing tall stairs to get a book.  It was over Gray's Drugstore which meant more stairs.  It was in William (Shorty) Johnson's egg business which was torn down when Jewett Printing expanded.  June 26, 1972  it was moved to its Main Street location which previously housed Paul Gregg's Dry Cleaners.  In 2009 this old building developed mold and structural problems and had to be vacated.  The library opened in a new temporary location at the Town Hall until a new building next to Heady Heating was purchased and renovated.  The library opened in the new building on Main Street on June 1, 2010.

There have been many librarians, but everyone of a "certain" age remembers Hazel Bennett having been with the library at each location.  Other librarians include Lucille King, Melba Scott, Ruth Lane, Linda Drake, Loena Gaskins, Carolyn Caton.
