History

  1. Doughboy History

    The local posts of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion, along with local veterans and enlisted personnel, joined together in 1923 to raise funds to purchase a Spirit of the American Doughboy statue as a memorial to local boys who died in World War I.

  2. Librarian History

    The Henryetta Public Library keeps a list of past librarians and reaches out to the public to help complete the information.

  3. Library History

    The idea for the Henryetta Public Library began in 1904 when an interested group of citizens, known as the Bide-a-Wee Club, formed to improve the civic life of the community.
