Wednesday and Thursday were filled with celebratory festivities surrounding the Detroit Lakes Library’s 100-year anniversary.

The Carnegie portion of the library was built 100 years ago through a grant from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation for $10,000.


“I can’t imagine the excitement here 100 years ago,” Detroit Lakes Vice Mayor Ron Zeman said. “And I can only imagine what will happen 100 years in the future.”
