LIbrary History
The first library in Cabot was founded in 1896.  Books were housed sometimes at a store or in someone's home and the few books available were easily carried to whatever location became convenient. The need for new books was great, but there was little money and no place to keep them in large numbers.  The ladies of the Judith Lyford Woman’s Club, which was founded in 1912 with 12 members, realized the need for a town library and set about raising money for that purpose.

A former summer resident in Cabot,  Charles Willey, while visiting during the 1916 Old Home Week celebration, learned of their efforts and offered to donate two dollars for every dollar they raised.  The ladies took the challenge, and within a year had raised $3,573.15.  True to his word, Charles Willey gave them his check for $7,646.36.  With that incentive, local individuals donated additional money,  materials and time for the project.
