The Clermont City Council honored the Cooper Memorial Library at the council's Tuesday regular meeting with a proclamation congratulating the institution on its 100th anniversary.

Receiving the congratulatory proclamation was the library's director and Regional Branch Manager Boyd Bruce, Lake County Director of Public Resources Wendy Breeden and members of the Cooper Memorial Library Association Board and Friends of Cooper Memorial Library.

The library's original location was near the current city hall. The original library building, nicknamed "Little Cooper," is part of the Clermont Historic Village where a reception will be held, with speakers recounting the library's history, on Sunday, November 9, from 2pm to 4pm, hosted by the Cooper Memorial Library Association Board.

On Saturday, November 8, Friends of the Library and the library staff will hand out cupcakes at the new building and will hang a 100th anniversary banner that will hang for the next year.

The library was named to honor the Montgomery Cooper family who donated the land for the original library. Cooper's great grandson is Clermont's current Fire Chief Carle Bishop.
