Christian County Library

On September 15, 1956, the library first opened in a two thousand square foot building, including offices and work areas. Staff consisted of Mrs. Anderson; assistant, Ruth Davis who had been hired in April to help set up the new facility and prepare the collection; and bookmobile driver Ben Hart. The library operated 8 -12 and 1 -5 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Christian County Library has participated in the ever-changing technology. Programs have gone from slides, filmstrips and 16mm films through videos to DVD’s. Long-playing records and reel-to-reel tapes have been replaced by books on tape and CD.
