In 1889, Sara Haldeman Haly bequeathed this property, located at the corner of First and Walnut streets in downtown Harrisburg, to become a public library.
A cornerstone was laid to build a new public library in downtown Harrisburg in the summer of 1912. The library would be under construction for about a year and a half.
In 1925, the first county-wide bookmobile service in Pennsylvania began with "The Cardinal." This bright red vehicle was the first of many bookmobiles operated by the Harrisburg Public Library.
The Media Mobile, shown here in the 1970s, was one of the last "bookmobiles" operated by the Dauphin County Library System.
