Pittsfield Public LibraryLocated at 205 N. Memorial.The library in it’s earliest
form started in 1855 with 40 members and 400 volumes.
Among the first trustees was John G. Nicolay, then editor of
a local newspaper and later to become personal secretary to
President Abraham Lincoln. The library had several locations
around the square until this building was completed in 1907.
Andrew Carnegie donated $7000 for the present facility in 1906.
Mrs. Chauncy Higbee, wife of a local Judge donated the lot for the
new building as well as pictures and cork carpeting for the children’s
room. The building was opened to the public on May 9th, 1907.In 1937 Fred Jones, formerly of Pike County, bequeathed 5,000
volumes from his personal library, and he also gave $25,000 to
constuct an annex to house them. Frank Jones, his brother, was
married to Nellie Grant Sartoris, who was General Grants daughter.
Because of this connection, the Library has several items relating to
the Grant family. Today the library has 23,000 volumes and 1634
members. It provides home bound book service, casettes, has an
