It's hard to believe the county's first library was a wire book rack that stood in a corner of the old Lansden-Coward Drug Store on Broad and Church streets. What a long way the library has come since the 1940s!
The state-of-the-art Millard Oakley Public Library, located on the courthouse square in Livingston, opened its doors in the spring of 2007.
