The Arthur Library was established in 1900 when
the population of the town was 850. Forty Arthur residents donated
$10.00 each to buy books for the use of the residents of Arthur. The
books were placed in Homrighouse's Jewelry Store. In 1907 the residents
voted to build a library on Vine Street. Construction was completed
the following year. Improvements were made in 1953 and an addition
built in 1973. Having out-grown the facility, an effort began in 1989
to construct a new building. With the aid of a $208,000 state construction
grant, a new building was completed in 1991. The new facility has approximately
5,000 square feet, is completely handicapped accessible, and has allowances
for expanding services both now and in the future.
