Hamline Midway Library: Past and Present




The Hamline Midway Library is the quintessestial

neighborhood public library.  It has been well-loved

since its grand opening on October 9th, 1930.







It was one of two original Henry Hale Memorial

branch libraries, and the only one of the original

twelve branch libraries with a working fireplace. 

This fireplace is used several times a year during

the Fireside Author Series, which is sponsored

by the Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library.
