After Mrs. Clark resigned, Miss Stella Lucas became librarian and served for
17 years or until her death in August, 1911. Mrs. Essie C. Nickerson, who acted
as librarian for several months during Miss Lucas' last illness, was appointed to
the post of regular librarian in September, 1911, and is still serving. The work
of the library has so increased that now several persons are required as assistants.
Of the members of the library board, much is due to C. E. Freeman, who has given
to the institution unstintedly of his time, advice and assistance. The late Prof.
G. L. Bowman, who was also a member of the board, worked effectively in its
behalf, and through his death the library lost a friend hard to replace.
In concluding this article it should be mentioned that, in addition to the library,
the Grand Army of the Republic and the Woman's Relief Corps have commodious
rooms in the Memorial Building. The entire establishment is illustrative of far-
seeing wisdom as well as of the highest form of philanthropy, and has done much
for the elevation and enlightenment of the people of Menomonie and Dunn County.
