Barron Public Library History

After the turn of the century, the Men’s Club, an organization of leading business and professional leaders, took the task of organizing a library. By 1912 they had outgrown their second location and obtained $6,500 grant from the Carnegie Foundation, purchased a lot for $500 and hired Claude & Starck. According to Visser, the catalog-order frieze is of staff, a molded gypsum/fiber material. An addition of the left and rear, the work of Potter Design Group, Inc., was dedicated on 22 March 1998. “Frank Lloyd Wright & the Prairie School in Wisconsin,” Visser 1992, Pages 217-19.
