This is our own Bonnie “Poulson” McKelvey. She is sitting in the libary when it was located under the courthouse.
The Holmes County Library first opened its doors in the basement of the Court House on December 7, 1928. There were only 500 volumes in the shelves and 100 residents registered to use the library. The library was moved to the building where the Board of Education now inhabits on June 22, 1975.
Bonnie works at the Central Library in Millersburg.
If you would like to read more about the history of the library, come in to the Central Library and look at “A Brief History of the Holmes County Public Library” by Fred W. Almendinger.
