New Roberts library in the works
The Hazel Mackin Library Association in Roberts recently received a grant for $250,000 from the Fred C. and Katherine B. Andersen Foundation. Library officials are now in the process raising an equal amount, and more, to build a new library for Roberts and the town of Warren.
The library is named after Hazel Rushenberg, who married Arthur Mackin. Hazel was a 1913 member of the first graduating class of Warren Union High School, later known as Roberts High School.
