The exact date of the founding of the first Wooster library is unknown.  Prior to 1857, some type of library association was in existence although the records do not provide information on its location or members.  Minnie {{Surname|Kauke}} had also organized a second library, renting books to those who were interested.
 
  
Wooster citizens met at the school house of Subdistrict One on March 7, 1857 and formally organized the [[Wooster Library Association]].  They chose a board of directors: four individuals who were already serving as directors of the old organization.  The association housed its collection of history and reference books in the law offices of [[M. Bonewitz - Law Office]] on Liberty Street not far from Walnut.
