Book Lovers Reside in Boulder Junction!

The first Boulder Junction library was started by Ada Williams.  It consisted of several shelves of books kept in a little storeroom in the basement in the old town hall.  Theda Foster served as librarian and would open the library two or three afternoons a week.  Check-out at the library was on the honor system, and no one exactly recalls where the books came from, although some may have been a project of the National Recovery Act during the Depression years and some could have been donated from family libraries.

When the town hall basement library closed, Klassen's grocery store served as a voluntary lending library.  "You bring one, you can take one."  There was the complete collection of Zane Grey's books, all the published issues of the National Georgraphic magazine and many donations from both residents and summer visitors.
