The Massena Public Library found its permanent home at 41 Glenn Street back in the early 1960s – thanks to a memorial gift of a son for his father. Victor, the son of Henry H. Warren (whose company built the first hydroelectric facility in Massena), set aside a sum of money so that a memorial could be erected for his father. A library was chosen as the ideal memorial to Henry Warren and, upon the completion of its construction in September of 1962, it was dedicated and given to the Town of Massena. Elaine Dunne-Thayer is the Director for the Massena Public Library.
A 5-member board is appointed by the Town to manage the investment made in the Public Library.
