Public Library


The Library was the creation of a dedicated trio of ladies from the Northumberland Junior Woman’s Club. They took on the project because they saw the need for a public library in the county. Chris Cogsdale, Kay Shirley and Patsy Basye started the process in January 1969. It was not an easy road to begin with but the Club never gave up their enthusiasm and plowed through all the tasks to bring their dream to reality.
