About Parrott-Wood Memorial Library

History of Parrott-Wood Memorial Library

In October 1969, the very small Strawberry Plains Library was ranked 7th in the region of 99 libraries, flourishing and bursting out at the seams. With a twinkle in her eye, Mrs. Mayme Parrott-Wood shared her dream of building a larger library for her community. She felt Strawberry Plains needed a better facility to further promote the desires and educational opportunities of the adults and the very young. With great enthusiasm Mrs. Parrott-Wood asked a friend to draw up temporary plans for a new library. On October 25, 1969, Mrs. Parrott-Wood gave the go ahead to purchase the materials for the new library. With dedicated volunteers and Mrs. Parrott-Wood being the benefactor, the new library began to take shape. On January 18, 1970, the new Parrott-Wood Memorial Library had its grand opening.
