Mission and History

Pickler Memorial Library History

Pickler Memorial Library’s current building was constructed in 1925, expanded in in 1967, and renovated in 1993. It is named for Samuel M. Pickler, a former student and faculty member whose generous donation made the 1925 construction possible. More details and an illustrated timeline can be found at our history page.
