The Horseheads Free Library was started in 1944 by Ruth B. Leet and other members of the Horseheads Woman’s Club. After the donated collection outgrew two rooms over Brown’s Drug Store in Hanover Square, it was moved to the second floor on the old Fire Station Annex on John Street (1949-1961). Upon receiving its charter as a free association library in 1958, an official affiliation with Steele Library began and a salaried librarian was hired. Successive homes were found within the Hanover Square Marine Midland Bank (1961-1962) and in the new Village Hall (1962-1967). Architects Fudge and Underhill planned the current building, named after Mrs. Leet, and it was built by McLane Construction. William A. Danaher, Jr., was Board President during most of the fundraising and formative years of the library.
