The Peter White Public Library stands in downtown Marquette and its massive stone construction makes it look like a temple. Built in 1903, it replaced the small library that was inside City Hall. The library is named after Peter White a local businessman, postmaster, real estate developer, Michigan state legislator, and philanthropist who lived from 1830 until 1908.
I use my local library often and having a place to go and find information along with people to help with research is invaluable. Happy National Library Week.
“A library is like an island in the middle of a vast sea of ignorance, particularly if the library is very tall and the surrounding area has been flooded.” Lemony Snicket
