Anne West Lindsey District Library

The Anne West Lindsay Library is a great new addition to the community. This new building is three times the size of the previous library and offers a community room, children’s area, media center with public computers and Wi-Fi connectivity, a genealogy/local history room, spacious collection areas and a convenient parking area available during all hours of service. The Library is located just outside of town in a residential area surrounded by a national forest. The perfect setting to loose yourself in a good book.

Her Vision Came To Life

Anne always dreamt of having a library built on her property, she even had land that she kept for this specific dream. Even when she was approached by interested buyers she would refuse and tell them about her vision. The building finally became a reality on November, 2008 when they broke ground and was completed on April, 2010 in time to open on May 3, 2010.
