Winslow Public Library, Winslow, ca. 1980

Contributed by Winslow Historical Preservation Committee


The original Winslow library building, on the east side of Lithgow Street in Winslow, was erected in 1926-27 at a cost of $3,000 on land donated by George Bassett.

Jennie Howard was the first librarian, serving from 1905 to 1933. Her compensation at one time was $52 a year.

Although, the library building still stands and is used by a local genealogical society, the town library was moved to a different location after the devastating Flood of 1987.
