Historic Hood River
This is a budget request from the Hood River Library Finance Committee to the Hood River City council for annual operations. We don’t know the exact year, but it was in city records circa 1905-1910. It was definitely before the construction of the city’s Carnegie library in 1913, since their greatest expense in renting space for their operations. The $850 requested had roughly the purchasing power of $26,000 today. No word on how the city council responded to the request.
