Faith Johnston Memorial Library History


Faith Johnston was a very giving spirit throughout her lifetime; giving of her wisdom, time, and resources. So, it was in her nature to aid the library when they were in need of new library space. Due to the generosity of Faith Johnston, the Rosebush Branch Library was able to expand and find a home within the walls of the one-room, clapboard church on Michigan Street in 1993. The building began to show signs of stress both within its original foundation and the floor due to the enormous weight and strain of the book stacks. In the summer of 2006, the library district purchased a large commercial space in the center of the village. Renovations for the new library space began through a partnership with CMU's IET department and the library district. The new branch location opened its doors on Monday, Aug. 27, 2007. The new space is three times larger than the old space and while it provides the same quality services to the community that it always did, it now offers additional children's programs, as well as, teen and adult programs. There is also a large community gathering space and a meeting room for public use. Included in the expansion was the addition of separate adult and youth computer space, as well as, a wireless network providing the community with free internet access, and separate areas for relaxing and studying for adults, teens, and children. A unique feature that patrons can enjoy in the warmer months of the year is the reading porch located in the back of the building.
