The Herrick Memorial Library: An Historical Study.
Dalton, Tracie Marie
This paper presents a historical account of the Myron T. Herrick Memorial Library (Wellington, Ohio) created by collocation of the majority of documented information from the 1840s to the 1990s. Information was primarily taken from written sources such as monographs, papers, essays, letters, statistical reports, and meeting notes, though some information from informal conversations was included. There are gaps in the timeline, due to the lack of written sources concerning the library during the pre-civil war era. Topics discussed include Myron T. Herrick's donation of funds for a new public library; Herrick's visit to Wellington; Herrick's second gift, a bequeathal of funds for an addition and upkeep; the dedication of the addition; re-cataloging; finding a head librarian; trying times and renovations from the 1960s through the 1980s; and the library today. (Contains 68 references.) (DLS)
