ABSTRACT
The article discusses the development of the Bowling Green Public Library in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It states that since 1950, the library faces challenges for getting its new facilities due to the crisis during the said time. It adds that the state's financial situation improves in 1953 and thus allows them to acquire Westminster church as new facility in 1954. However, it says that annual fee of 5 dollars per family was set by the library in July 1, 1961 to continue their library services.
