The Williamsport-Washington Township Public Library is scheduled to reopen in about 2 weeks. A fire on the night of October 8, 2006 caused over $2 million in damage and destroyed most of the library’s collection, including its genealogy and local history books. The fire (which was ruled to be arson) caused the library to relocate to an American Legion building during the rebuilding process. The library rebuilt at its original location, which is across the street from the Warren County courthouse.
Access has also been restored to the Warren County, Indiana Historical Records Database, which is a joint effort of the library and the Warren County Historical Society.
