The Williamsport-Washington Township Public Library intends to finance the renovation of and
improvements the library. The Board finds that there are not sufficient funds available or provided for in
the existing tax levies in which to pay the total cost of the project and the library should issue bonds for the
purpose of providing funds to be applied to the project. Located here are all the documents the board
has voted on and filed with the appropriate state agencies.

History of the Library
History of the Williamsport Public Library as of September 10, 2009.
During the year of 1914 a few civic-minded citizens of Williamsport proposed the building of a public library. This petition was led by Jane Brodie and was received with much enthusiasm. The first library operated out of a borrowed back room in one of the offices in downtown Williamsport. The library started with 105 books donated
by the community. The cost of membership was five cents. Mabel Claypool was paid five dollars a month for her services and
worked Monday thru Saturday.
