Madrid Library History

We are beginning to add images of historical value to the website. Anyone who has images or stories about the library feel free to bring them in. We can scan them to create a digital image of the items you have. There will be links to the actual historical newspapers so you can see the whole page not just the clip of history.  If you find any errors you may bring it to our attention by emailing us with subject: Library history.

This page will keep track of updates to the historical additions. When we add something new there will be a link on this page. Otherwise you can explore the timeline we are setting up, most of which presently is blank.
