The Hepburn Library of Waddington is a historical landmark in Waddington, NY. #throwbackthursday

A. Barton Hepburn had a vision of designing libraries to be used as a gathering place for social events meant to stimulate the use of the library. As he had a deep appreciation for education, he wanted to erect public libraries in each of the seven towns over which he had once served as School Commissioner. The Hepburn Libraries share similar architecture and serve 7 rural communities. We are very proud to be one of the seven Hepburn Libraries in the area.

This building holds so much History.

The Hepburn Library of Waddington was built in 1919. It has been operated by loyal Library Directors for over 100 years, serving the community of Waddington well.
