Bruun Memorial Library

Email:  bmemorial@neb.rr.com
Website:  www.bruunlibrary.org
Bruun Memorial Library, located on the southeast corner of the town square, was organized in 1884 and celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2009.  The library was originally upstairs above a store, but moved downstairs and later renovated an attached building with grant funds and a local family donation.  This addition features a meeting room, a large display of historic pictures donated by several area families, historic memorabilia, and a variety of historical records for genealogy research.  The library also provides public access computers, and has books, magazines, audio books and movies available for checkout.

Humboldt Town Square
The Humboldt Town Square was recently revitalized with historic lighting, painted mural, pedestrian amenities, complete new sidewalks with handicap accessibility and the original bricks were re-laid. The Humboldt Commercial Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005 with the Nebraska Historical Marker placed in the Northeast corner of the City Park.

Humboldt Civic groups took on the project of restoring the bandstand in the middle of the City Park and preparing the wall of the Lodge building for the mural on the Northeast corner of the Square. The large mural illustrates the history and heritage of Humboldt. It draws the viewer back to the days when Humboldt was the site of a brick works that made most of the street paving bricks for the Burlington Northern depots, to the days of the grand hotel on the square, to a scene that depicts all the pomp and pageantry of the Richardson County Fair and Fall Festival, complete with marching band, flags, horses, Fair Queens and tractors. This 2,500+ sq ft mural was created by Greg Holdren.

c/o Bruun Memorial Library, PO Box 368, Humboldt, NE 68376

The Humboldt Historical Picture Society was organized October 9, 1989.  The original committee consisted of Charles Marburger, chairman; Veronica Arington, secretary; and Maxine Weaver, treasurer.  Other members who have served since that time are Nellie Marie Howe, Annabelle Rumbaugh and Elma Ruth Yaussi.  The object of the society is to collect pictures or reproductions of people, businesses, events, etc., that have a connection to Humboldt and the surrounding community.  While the society is an independent entity, library facilities are used to store and display the collection.

Since that time the group has received many donations, both of pictures and money, categorized and identified pictures, and organized several collage displays.  They also helped with the purchase of an 1879 map of Richardson County for the library.  As members aged, the committee became inactive.  Currently, plans are being made to reorganize the group to help maintain the historic picture collection at Bruun Memorial Library.
