August, 1904, catalogued the books
in the library, which now number
2,132 volumes, besides many
government reports, pamphlets,
etp., not classified.
The Hilo Public Library had its
origin in a very modest way as a
circulating bi ok club twenty-four
years ago. On March 19, 1880, a
number of the prominent families
residing in Hilo and vicinity met
! 111 the nailors of Rev. 1 ltus Coan
and organized a club known as the
Hilo Hook Association. The
membership ofthe club was limited
to thirty, the wives being admitted
I as ex-officie members of the society.

I Mrs. D. II. Luuan, Rev. and Mrs.

Dr. C. S. Kittredgc placed at the
disposal of the club a room in the
rear of his office, from which books
were tegularly drawn once a week.
As the little library continued to
grow, a bookcase was purchased
by popular subscription among the
club members. Later the books
were moved into the Court House,

JOllll A. JSfCKWltll,
treasurer and librarian, had charge
of the books tiiril 1887, by which
time the library had grown to near
ly 500 volumes. During this period
the books were moved into the
telephone building, where now
s'auds the Baldwin block, and in
November, 1899 across lite street,
when the telephone exchange was
moved to the present quarters.
Here for many yean, ftoin April
12, 1887 to i8o,s, K. Iv, Ricbntds,
May Close From Lack of
telephone malinger, looked after the
loaning of the books among the
club members ami others who Hub-'
scribed to the support ofthe library.
There was an interval for two
club members and others who sub-
years when the book club .seemed
to cease to exist, although the
library was carefully preserved and
became much depleted,
On April 20, 1895, a general
mass meeting of citizens was called
at the Court House to consider the
question of a town hall, a public
ot contention lor many years.
Fireman s Hall was then being con
structed and it was expcctetl to
utilize the upper floor of Ibis build
ing for a town hall and library.

Steps were immediately taken to
incorporate, and in April, 1896, a
charter was obtained for the "Hilo
i Library and Reading Room Asso
ciation." 1 he officers ofthe as
sociation were H. C. Austin, pre
sident; J. A. Scott, Vice-president;
J. H. Daniels, Secretary, L. Sever
ance, Treasurer, and a board of
Trustees consisting of Mrs. W. A.
Hardy, Mrs. F. S. Lyman, V. W.
Goodale, C. C. Kennedy and F. M.
The Legislature by Act 17,
Session Laws of 1896, granted to
the association "for libraiy pur
poses" a government lot on Waia
uuentie street, where the library
now stands. The public now had
a library and a site for a library
building, but no building. Here
it was that through the generosity
of one of Htlo'i public spirited
citizens the town secured a com
fortable library and reading room.
Dr. Chas. Wctmore on December
2, 1886, purchased and presented
to the Library Association the
frame building formerly occupied
by the First Foreign Church on
the coiner of Church and Pitman
streets. In making the gift of the
building with his "Aloha" Dr.
' Wetmore "hoped it would prove
very useful to our Hilo community
fot many many years to come." The
cost of moving the structure to the
