The Alfred Dickey Public Library is a functioning library that is a slice straight out of history.
Dive into the past when you visit with the Louis L’Amour interactive exhibit and the Alfred Dickey display. Built in 1918, the building, which still functions as a public library, was the very place that Louis L’Amour nurtured his early love of stories.
The Alfred Dickey Public Library was founded by and named for Alfred M. Dickey who was the first lieutenant governor of North Dakota. He firmly believed that a free library should be available to the citizens of Jamestown.
