Wichita Falls Public Library holds centennial anniversary celebration

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - The Wichita Falls Public Library celebrated a milestone Saturday.

The library held its centennial anniversary celebration at the Kemp Center for the Arts.

Event-goers enjoyed live jazz music, drinks, dessert and many historic documents detailing the history of the library.

There was also face-painting, balloon making, and a DJ.

Library employees said they recently made an interesting discovery.

"We did just last week find a huge treasure trove of historic materials in a locked cabinet," said Assistant Library Administrator Andrew Jelen. "There's orders for library furniture, the first budget, the first annual report to the state library, so there was a lot of interesting things even from 1918 that were in this."

Employees and organizers said they are proud of the library being there for the community all these years.
