Station Branch History
On October 1, 1929 the Board of Trustees of the Huntington Public Library elected Assistant Librarian Dr. Theodore Lyman Frost to start work on preparing a book collection for the Huntington Station Branch of the library. The opening was scheduled for December 8, 1929 with an initial collection of 700 volumes, including 300 children's books, 50 volumes of standard fiction, 100 popular reprints, 50 additional titles required for school reading, 100 books of reference and non-fiction, and 100 volumes of recent publications of all classes. The Old Memorial Library Building (the Village Library) transferred 150 volumes of duplicates in good condition to the Station Branch. The community made donations as well.
