Library History

A library existed in Ravenna as early as 1854. In that year, the Library Association of Ravenna established a private subscription library. The drawback was that it was only available to members who paid a large annual fee. A subscription library existed in Ravenna through the 1880's.

It is my belief that the library is an institution for positive change in a community.  For Reed Memorial, this has meant over 100 years of change. The Library and community have seen a great deal in that time.


Reed Memorial Library publishes an informational newsletter three times each year to update community members on events and news pertaining to the library. To view past newsletter issues, download the PDF versions using the links below:
