Below are links to transcriptions of the West Lafayette Public Library Board Meeting Minutes by year. Click on a specific date to view that transcription. Some of the transcriptions, like the undated fouding document of the archive, include photographs of the source material for the transcription.

For more information on the archiving process and/or information on the public library please visit the contact page.

Note on Archiving practice:

The following transcriptions were created with a particular eye for historical accuracy. As a result, capitalization and punctuation has not been regularized, but rather reflects the source material in its original state. In some cases, photographs are available of the source material for the minutes transcriptions.

In addition, because many of the early minutes are handwritten, some of the transcriptions involve a "best guess" of the transcriber. Any words or phrases in the transcriptions denoted in between brackets [---] reflect these instances. Please feel to direct any further comments and questions to those listed on the contact page.
