Tucker Free Library – reflecting on our history

Fannie W. Bennett, Librarian & Carrie F. Bennett, Assistant Librarian (pictured in photo)

LIBRARY HISTORY FACTS:  Fannie W. Bennett was the librarian from 1921 to 1955.  During her time as the librarian, the Tucker Free Library transacted its first INTERSTATE INTERLIBRARY LOAN (1932).  Story time was cancelled and the library was closed for a period in 1940 because of Scarlet Fever.  In January of 1941 the library was closed at 7PM instead of 8PM to conserve light and heat.  In was again closed in 1945 on Thursdays through the winter because of fuel shortages.  In 1946 NEC was established.  Tucker Free Library trustees extend facility to students and faculty. Fannie Bennett retired on August 31, 1955 after serving 34 years as the director.
