ABOUT LILIAN LINDSEY
The Lilian Lindsey Bookstore,
operated by the Friends of the Paul Sawyier Public Library,
was named after the founder and first director of
Frankfort's original public library.
The library, which opened in 1908, began with Ms. Lindsey
collecting books in her own home.
Because there were no funds to hire a librarian,
she left the State to take courses in library science.
On December 12 of 1908,
under the auspices of the Frankfort Woman's Club,
she opened the first library
on the seventh floor of the McClure Building.
Ms. Lindsey (1878-1939) grew up in the Vest-Lindsey House,
which is located next to our new library.
Her picture is hung on the wall,
next to the door of the Lilian Lindsey Bookstore.
