The dedication of Cossitt Library on April 12, 1893, drew thousands to the steps of the new building on the corner of Front St. and Monroe Ave. Speaking at the ceremony, Rev. F. P. Davenport referred to the library as “the people’s univeristy”, explaining that, “what the great universities do for a few, the public library does for the many.”
