Revision as of 17:52, 2 January 2013

Edna Adelaide Brown, born in 1875, was author of more than one dozen children's books. She was appointed head librarian of Memorial Hall Library in 1906. She began to campaign for the addition of a room for children in her 1907 annual report. By 1913, she said, "In this age of society-forming, there should be a society for the prevention of cruelty to libraries." Her annual appeals for a separate space for children were finally successful when the Children's Room was added in 1926. She also extended library hours, initiated an open shelf system, and started the Ballardvale Branch of Memorial Hall Library. She retired in 1939 and died in 1944.
