Cresson Public Library’s History
The Cresson Public Library started in 1921, staffed by volunteers. In 1924 the library was located in a small room on the third floor of the First National Bank Building and in 1927 it moved to the second floor of the Cresson Municipal Building. A groundbreaking ceremony on May 17, 1962 initiated construction of the present building on ground donated by Mr. and Mrs. James B. McCardell. This project was made possible by public donations and volunteer labor. The present building was dedicated on September 13, 1964.
