A History of Coshocton Public Library, 1872-1992: A Public Library/Museum Partnership.
Jones, Diane Zuro
The history of the Coshocton Public Library (Ohio) is traced from 1872 through 1992, highlighting its connection with the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. In response to a newspaper editorial, citizens of Coshocton formed the Coshocton Library Association in 1872. The library evolved through the years as a free school library, a municipal library, a school district library, and a county district library. During this evolution, the Coshocton Library Board of Trustees supported the educational and recreational literary pursuits of the county's citizens through times of economic security as well as instability. The acceptance of the establishment and operation of the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum in 1929 began the development of a unique library/museum partnership, one of only six currently operating in Ohio.
