Library-History Book



There's a new book for sale now that outlines the history of the Winona Public Library 

The Friends of Winona Public Library announces the release of  Laird's Legacy: A History of the Winona Public Library by Greg Gaut. The book is now for sale at the Winona Public Library circulation desk and at the Winona County History Center.

What started as a discovery, turned into a collaborative project between the library, the Friends of the Winona Public Library, and Greg Gaut, a historian specializing in historic preservation. 

History center Executive Director Mark Peterson calls it an interesting book.

Book sale proceeds will serve as a perpetual fundraiser for the Friends of the Library organization.

The book is being unveiled at a special reception at the History center today, Thursday, at 4:00 p.m.
