Long Description:
"Constructed in 1901-02 in York, the library is a fine example of educational architecture. Designed by Marrison H. Vail, the building incorporates elements of the Romanesque Revival-style of architecture. The York Public Library represents one of a small number of libraries built in the state prior to, and without Andrew Carnegie funding. Mrs. Lydia Woods, a local citizen, donated monies to build the facility, the first permanent home for the library since its early beginnings in the 1880s." ~ Nebraska State Historical Society website
