There is a lot of history in the Bismarck Veterans Memorial Library. The library has been a staple in our community for over 100 years - it opened in 1917! According to the library's website, at the time it opened, there were 4,000 books, one librarian, and 1,800 cardholders.

Fast forward to the present, the library has made a move from its original location, gotten a makeover and more square footage, and been renamed to honor our nation's military veterans. And, of course, their collection has vastly expanded. The library has hundreds-of-thousands of books (and other media) and 46,000 library card holders.
