Help us celebrate the library's bicentennial! The Ogden Farmers' Library will be 200 years old in 2015. On Saturday, January 24th at 2:00 pm, we invite you to a library birthday party! This event will feature a "Living Time Line" of the library's 200-year history and birthday cake. All ages are welcome. No registration is required.
A Little Library History In 1815 the locals, most of whom were farmers, got together to organize the library for the common good. Records from the time have gone missing over the years, but the 1815 date is sure. The collection was kept in a local home. It cost two dollars to join the library at that time and it started with a collection of 64 books. Today, 200 years later, it’s actually free to join the library and we have just over 51,000 items available to the public, in addition to electronic resources.
We plan to have events each month at the library over the course of the coming year. Please join us!
