The Williamstown Public Library's 150th anniversary open house is made possible through funding by Trustees and Friends of the Milne Public Library.
In 1874, the citizens of Williamstown voted to establish a public library, supported by funds collected from dog licenses. From its beginnings in a corner of Cole's General Store on Water Street, the Milne Public Library now boasts a collection of 53,500 books, 6,700 card holders, and a circulation of over 100,000 last year.
