Heritage Society

Embracing the Future...Preserving the Past


More than 115 years ago, J. Herman Bosler gave an incredible gift to the community. Because of his generosity and foresight, Bosler Memorial Library's East Wing, the cornerstone of the newly renovated library facility, stands as a testament to the legacy of learning and enlightenment that began in 1900.


Over the decades, time had taken its toll on the building, and renovations became necessary to restore the East Wing to the condition it so richly deserves. The Library therefore established the Heritage Society to raise the $200,000 needed to make these necessary repairs.


Thanks to the generosity of 73 donors dedicated to restoring the historic original building, Bosler Memorial Library was able to raise the $200,000 needed to restore the façade of the library's East Wing. We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the Heritage Society campaign in 2014 for this special capital improvement project, and we especially wish to acknowledge the following donors who committed $1,000 or more to join the newly-formed Heritage Society.
