History: The throwing wide of the doors of the James V. Brown Memorial Library to the public, on Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock, will be one of the most significant annals of Williamsport. For the first time in the history of the city the public will be offered opportunities for educational development, through the medium of the best books obtainable. The thousands of volumes in the James V. Brown Library furnish information on every subject worth knowing about, and all are at the disposal of those who would read and learn." The Brown Library was a bequest to the city from lumber baron and philanthropist James VanDuzee Brown who died on December 8, 1904, at age 78. Already a widower with no children, Brown had dreamt for years of giving Williamsport a free, public library. The idea for the library was suggested by his late wife, Carile Brown. During the next several years the Brown Library's services expanded to include branches and reading stations in Montoursville, Newberry, and other city locations. By 1920 a library tax was established to finance the needs of the library and its users, as Mr. Brown's annual endowment of $10,000 for purchasing new books and materials was not enough to keep up with the demand.

History: The throwing wide of the doors of the James V. Brown Memorial Library to the public, on Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock, will be one of the most significant annals of Williamsport.
