About the Dundy County Public Library

The present-day Dundy County Public Library was founded in 1932 as the Benkelman Women's Club Library. Five years later, the library was moved to a room in the courthouse and operated by Women's Club volunteers. With some additional funding secured, the Benkelman Women's Club secured a lease in the Municipal Building for the library, where it moved in 1957 and was renamed the Dundy County Library. The Dundy County Public Library has remained in the Municipal Building since the 1950s and continues to serve the residents of Dundy County, Nebraska.
