Mrs. Alla Bryant, member of Valparaiso's first library board, was one of several club women who in 1910 successfully campaigned for a $900 fund needed to establish a city library. An act of the General Assembly of 1901 made the subscription of a fund necessary before a city library could be founded. Mrs. Bryant is a member of the board at the present time and has been actively interested in the fine progress of the library since its establishment 26 years ago. The photo herewith was taken of Mrs. Bryant in 1875.
