Growing up these boys frequently visited libraries which were always located in other towns. They wanted a special purpose for their Eagle Scout project that would help many. So, George and Gregory Daniels decided they wanted a library in their town. They collected over 10,000 books from their community to establish a new library in their community. These books are currently housed in two storefronts in the Willowbrook Strip Mall.
