Emma Burnham Public Library

403 Main Street
Frederick, SD 57441

The Emma Burnahm Public Library has been an entity of the Town of Frederick since a public vote in 1919. The Library's namesake, Emma Burnham, was instrumental in establishing reading rooms, the first library and a women's study circle in 1909, The Alph Circle, which still exists today.
The Library offers a full range of materials and services including: current adult fiction as well as classic literature, Local and Midwest collections, non-fiction (cookbooks are a favorite!), children’s picture books, chapter books and young adult books. Items not available in our own collection are easily ordered through the South Dakota Library Network which gives us access to books from all S.D. Libraries as well as those in other states if necessary.
