St. James Library Association, Central Colorado ~  1870

This library contains over 400 well bound volumes, besides journals and periodicals, comprising many valuable literary, scientific and religious works, selected with great care, by persons thoroughly qualified for the task, both by natural tastes and educational attainments.

The rooms of the association are in the basement of the Methodist church building, on Eureka Street, Central, and are tastefully fitted up and furnished by the association for library purposes exclusively, and are a very pleasant place of resort for lovers of good literature.

The character of the works in St. James' library are of a high order, and, though not numerous, are exceedingly valuable, and the affairs of the association are in a prosperous condition.

The library is conducted on the circulating plan, but is open to visitor's at all seasonable hours. The present officers are:

 President, D. C. Collier
Vice-President, Hal. Sayre
Treasurer, A. J. Vanderen
