Here’s a slideshow of some interior and exterior views of the library’s Local History Room. We’re really proud of the room’s appearance and hope you’ll agree.
The historic lamp from Pekin’s original Carnegie Library (1902-1972) seems to make for an especially symbolic addition to the Local History Room. We like to think of our room as helping to keep the lamp of Pekin’s history and tradition burning while shedding light on our community’s past.
