Book Brigade Officially Kicks Off The Library Move
February 22, 1999, over 600 people from the Central and Warrensburg communities
formed a line across campus from Ward Edwards Library to a point on Clark
Street directly across the street from the new library. The Book Brigade
kicked off the moving of the library to the new building.
Among the many campus and community groups attending were greek organizations, Warrensburg City employees, ROTC, and children from local preschools and daycare centers.
The hugely successful "passing of the books" allowed everyone to share in the excitement of the move. It had been estimated that at least two hundred people would be needed to span the distance from one library to the other. The turnout of over three times that many people in the cool damp weather illustrated the great sense of community at Central.
