Mid-South memories: Jan. 18, 2012 -Odd Fellows Library | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

"125 years ago: 1887

 

The proceedings of the Trustees of the Odd Fellows Library have a special interest for every intelligent man and woman in Memphis, and we trust they may lead to something definite being done toward the establishment of a Public Library and reading room to which access may be had any time between 10 in the morning and 11 at night. A Public Library and reading room is a public necessity, and the money for it ought to be easily within reach."
