Kanawha County Public Library Celebrates 100 Years of Service

Link to June 2 (Charleston West Virginia) Sunday Gazette-Mail article, "Kanawha County Public Library turns 100 years old".

Excerpt: Charleston had no public library until a group of determined women -- the Woman's Kanawha Literary Club -- formed a committee in 1908 and drummed up support in the community.

The literary group, which dates back to 1896, still meets every other Tuesday over tea and dessert for a discussion of a scholarly paper presented by a member, said Anne Silbernagel, the immediate past president.
