Granby Library


          The library of Granby has an interesting history.  Before the Granby Public Library was built there were two other private libraries in town.  In 1891 the town established a free library on the first floor in the northwest corner of Kellogg Hall.  By 1915 the room in Kellogg Hall was too small for the library‚Äôs book collection.  The current library was built in 1917.  There were 428 books in the library back then.  Now there are over 20,000 books.   The land was donated by Dexter Taylor and the $5,000 grant was donated by the Carnegie Foundation.  More than ninety years ago on November 23, 1917 the Granby residents entered the library at One Library Lane for the first time.  Mrs. Homer Taylor was a librarian there for thirty years and died in 1959.  At the end of World War II the old heater was broken and the town voted to get an oil burning furnace.  The library is at the end of the common.   The library is doing excellent today.
