Manilla Library

The written word has been the heartbeat of communication for centuries. Built in 1887, this frame building became a Mechanic's Institute in 1893, from which the Manilla Library emerged. Since then, the library has offered library and community services to Manilla and the surrounding area. Now restored, it is operating as a community hub once again.
