It’s a very special birthday for this North Dakota institution.
This year marks the Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library’s 100th birthday.
Throughout the years, the library has been home to classes, meetings, and a place to connect in the community.
And though the technology and services they provide have changed, this librarian says, throughout the years, the knowledge you can find when you walk through their doors is something you can always find at the library.
“[No-matter the] socioeconomic background, where you are from, we have all different types of people in the community that come here. And because we have such a variety of different programs and items available, we meet their needs,” Christine Kujawa, Bismarck Veterans Library Director says.
“It’s an oasis of learning, this is where you can learn lots of different things from books,” Neil Souther, Bismarck Veterans Library patron says.
The library celebrated its centennial by hosting several open houses throughout the year ending with its final celebration of the season, today.
