About Us

It is an independent library, completely staffed by volunteers who believe in the library as an invaluable place in the community.  The financial support of individuals, businesses, and organizations, as well as grants, make this place possible.

    I know the late Eli H. Bowman was a member of your community. I am trying to locate some photos he published in Mt. Hope, A Pictorial History. Is there any chance those materials were given to the library following his death?

    Thank you

  4. Do you have information on the old Fredericksburg Academy?

    The Fredericksburg High School Academy was established in 1852 “being established and taught by Basil C. Smith during the years 1852-1866.B.C. Smith came to Fredericksburg in 1822, & was educated in Edinburg, Hayesville, and Oberlin. It was closed in 1866 when the professor’s health failed.

    I am sorry, but no, we did not receive those materials. If you do find them, we would be glad for copies of any information you have about him.

    We are working on automating our library collection, and will remain closed until that work is finished. We are hoping to reopen on or before Nov. 1. Thanks for asking!
