History of the Stratford Library
The Stratford Library was first organized in March of 1921 by the P.T.A. at the original Princeton School, a building later moved to 320 Harvard Avenue, now a residence. Miss Amy Hardester, a teacher, volunteered as the first librarian. However, when the school closed for the summer, Mrs. Hemmingsen of 106 Princeton Avenue offered her home, and the library remained there until 1924. for more about the history of the Stratford Library [read]
