St. Patrick's Library

The small white building behind the trees was St. Patrick's Library, the library had over 600 books. 

The church had a library as early as 1866, the Benevolent Society minutes on page 11 appointed a committee to value the books.

February 1867 the society assign a committee to purchase books from Boston, Mass. (page 20), at a later date the books would be purchased from St. Louis.

March 1867 the society resolved that boys of the age 10 may be admitted to use the library for an admittance fee of fifty cents and 10 cents per month thereafter. No member was allowed to have more then one book at a time and no member was allowed to loan a book to someone who was not a member otherwise they would be fined.

Rules of initiation required each member to donate a book (page 49), it states that every member not donating a book in accordance with the rules of initiation would be charged fifty cents to purchase a book.

June 1872 women were admitted to use the library by paying the initiation fee and then ten cents per month thereafter (page 80).
In the 1930's the library books were moved to the KC Hall, to be stored.

July 2004 an inventory of the books was taken, and the remaining books are listed below.
