    Packhorse library in Rowan County KY

    Newbie

      I am looking for any information on the Packhorse Library and Librarians in Rowan County (Morehead) Kentucky. They started in 1937 and ended in 1939 when a fire destroyed all their materials. I would also love to find pictures of any of the librarians or the building (Caskey Hotel). The information I have found in the local newspapers is confusing and sometimes contradictory. And I was also wondering it there was a  WPA regular library here.

       

      And I would love to anything on the WPA in Rowan County, such as the schools, voting houses and the old jail and superintendent's office. Those were recently save from destruction by the citizens of the county.

      Thanks!!
