Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA) constructed the Syracuse Public Library in Syracuse, NE. The town had applied for Public Works Administration funds for a new library building, but the application was not granted. The town purchased and demolished the Syracuse Congregational Church and the new building that replaced it became the public library. The library held 4,000 volumes in 1934. The government funds for labor and materials amounted to $1,908.75.

Presuming the building still exists and is at the site of the current library, it has been heavily modified since the time of its original construction.
