Columbus Library Turns One Hundred


A library in Columbus, Kansas celebrates its 100th birthday. On Sunday afternoon the community was invited to enjoy refreshments and live entertainment.

The library was established in 1904 by a "Shakespeare and Home Culture Club." Within a year the first library building was established and purchased for $1600 dollars. 

The building is the final government building remaining in the city's historical architecture.

"It will make it into the next century because the community cares so much about it and its not just one of those things you know they support, but don't come and see it. These people that are here are people we see all the time," said Librarian Danielle Dougherty.

The building of the library was designed by a famous Kansas architect George Washborn.
