Attend South End Library Dedication

This is a group of some of the people who have worked to complete a modern library branch in South Cumberland, and were among scores who attended the formal dedication and open house on Virginia Avenue last night. Left to right are Leo Crites, Mrs. G. O. Himmelwright, Mrs. C. Eugene Howell, Dr. Lillian Compton, James Roby, James Scarpelli, William B. Orndorff and Mrs. William J. Hay. The branch is part of the county library system. The building was purchased by a group of citizens in South Cumberland for library use and has been completely renovated and remodeled. Cost of the remodeling and equipping was defrayed from county and state library funds through the Board of Library Trustees, all of whom attended the open house, together with the librarian and the staff from the main library. The book collection is being increased and circulation already reflects the importance of the new branch development. Cost of remodeling, new equipment and fixtures was in excess of $13,000, a spokesman for the trustees said. This is the first in a series of planned improvements in the county library branches.
