45 years of fostering a love for reading

As an entity, the Hazen Public Library is celebrating its 45th birthday in April. In that near half-century the book collection has been moved from beside the current water treatment plant, to inside city hall, to the building in Heritage Park where it currently resides.

The library’s current building, however, has a storied history in itself – having at one time served as a railroad depot in its earliest days, to providing a home for a family, to even having served as a Halloween haunted house.
