Franz Weinhappel Room of Local History and Genealogy
Franz Weinhappel, a cabinet maker, moved from Austria to Hohenwald in the early 1900s. A hand-crafted room was removed from Mr. Weinhappel’s home and installed in the library in 1989. This room contains an excellent historical records collection of books and microfilm. HeritageQuest is available on the public computers at the library, and may also be accessed from a home computer.
Friends of the Library
Friends of the Library—Lewis County is a 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer group dedicated to fostering a love of books, reading, and cultural activities in Lewis County while reaching out to the community to advocate and grow support for the Lewis County Public Library. Friends meet at 9 a.m. on the last Friday of each month at the library. Meetings are open to all.
Friends of the Library hold booksales and other fundraising events throughout the year to fund library improvements. Past projects have included painting murals in the children’s and storytime areas, installing baby changing tables in restrooms, purchasing security cameras and new chairs for the library, an exterior facelift, and the installation of a park bench near the front entrance.
Friends of the Library has a positive impact on the library, which in turn, allows the library to better serve Lewis County. Our Friends group extends the library’s capacity through monetary gifts, volunteers and program support, and through advocacy.
