Lebanon Public Library
In 1903, philanthropist Andrew Carnegie wrote a letter to local attorney W. Chester Maple offering Lebanon $10,000 for the construction of a public library providing the City could donate an acceptable site and agree to maintenance costs of $1,000 per year. Almost a full four years after the letter, the public library was opened. Today, the library offers over 150,000 items to choose from with 12,000+ items added each year, a technology center and a variety of community programs.
