Event Description:
The Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to celebrate the unveiling of an Ohio Historical Marker noting the historical significance of the Wilmington Public Library!

When the Library opened for readers on June 30, 1904, the Wilmington News Journal called it “an ornament and a source of pride to the town.” The building was funded by a $12,500 grant from Andrew Carnegie, one of 111 such libraries in the state of Ohio, intended to offer the community “the solution to all of their educational, social, and cultural problems; and the key to success in the future.”

Light refreshments will be served.
