The Pine Bough - Vol 7, September 2002

"The crowning glory of Diboll will soon be a magnificent library building." - American Lumberman, January 18, 1908.

Much has changed since this pronouncement appeared nearly a century ago in a popular Chicago trade magazine. In 1908 a library in a Texas sawmill company town was news indeed. Yet news of Diboll offering new and exciting educational opportunities through the community library did not end there.
