New Warsaw Public Library Opens

Warsaw, IL – The new Warsaw Public Library is open for business. The facility has several public computers, rows of large bookshelves, a seperate reading area for children, and a large community meeting room. Library Board President, Eileen Shoup, expects more people to take advantage of the new library. The facility is also more accessible because there are no steps to climb with everything located on one floor. The library's rare book room, which will house several Civil War era books and newspapers, must still be completed. Shoup says a donation from the estate of Leon and Marion Lamet was used to pay for the building at the corner of 10th and Webster. She says a formal dedication will take place this summer.
