Pierce Free Public Library

208 South Main Street
Pierce, ID 83546



The Pierce Free Public Library is located in the historic mining and logging town of Pierce, Idaho. The library was instituted under the plan for "School District Libraries." T.B. Reed, a state legislator from Clearwater county and a resident of the Pierce area, directed the necessary legal actions for its formation. On July 14, 1919 a petition was filed with the board of trustees of Independent School District no. 1 in Clearwater county asking that a Free Public Library and reading room be established in Pierce. The school district at its September 8th, 1919 meeting found that since there were more than the twenty signatures required by law, and since this issue had been voted on at the annual election (28 for the library, 10 against), that a resolution should be drawn up establishing the tax upon all taxable property in the school district to create and support a library
