The Mason Library has been a community institution since Albert Hall had it built in memory of his wife, Ada, in 1938. Hall built it at the site of his childhood home on Ash Street. Head Librarian Cheryl Lyons said the library is still a fixture in the community. “It has 75 years of history, and it is one of the best historic buildings in town” -Head Librarian Cheryl Lyons
Lyons said the library was a showpiece for the city of Mason. It underwent renovations and was expanded in the 1960s and 1970s, and Lyons still considers it a valuable asset to the community.
