The Library was founded on September 16, 2011, when the current Head Librarian, Ben B., could not seem to locate the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, as Assistant Librarian Jonathan D. stated in a 2012 interview. Cullen H., the leader of the defunct Albright branch founded in Austin as the first subsidiary of the Wilson Public Library not located in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. The classroom library of Mrs. Wilson was thence reorganized by Ben, Jonathan, and Cullen, and opened with a "ravenous tearing of notebook paper," the head librarian would later state. What made the Library special, says Ben B., is the innovative full library checkout system possessed by the Wilson Public Library that differs from normal classroom libraries. The Book Club of the Wilson Public Library was founded in October of the same year by Haley S. and Dwayne S., being officially known as the H&D Book Club. At this time it was a separate entity from the Library, but became part of the Library by a bilateral agreement, with the Book Club being housed in the East Wing of the Library in the Hutchison and Milne Library Center. The Library resumed normal operations until November 2011, when tensions increased in the Board of the Library over mutual distrust in the Cabinet, which was promptly resolved the following day. But the troubles were not over for the Library. In December 2011, the most serious incident in the history of the Library occurred, with the Book Club threatening secession from the Library over and issue with the Book Club's signup sheet in the Hutchison and Milne Library Center being relocated to an extremely unauspicious location, which the Book Club claims contributed to its lack of member additions in that day, with the Book Club membership drive going on at the time. Another reason for the incident known by the Head Librarian and Head of Branch Hannah S. as the Book Club Incident was a level-of-power argument in which the head of the Book Club's stature in the Library was disputed. The issue was also promptly settled the following day in a similar manner of the last incident, which the Head Librarian gives heavy credit to Jonathan D. for solving. "I still regret it," says Ben B. "That incident changed my life." Progressing into the new year, the Library began agreements with Adam L., the head of the Leonardo Treasury (a description is available at their website) for a hosting of the Treasury in a suite next to the existing Book Club establishment. The agreement was finalized with a sponsoring of the Leonardo Treasury, a banking system (originally known as the Leonardo Bank of America) by the Wilson Public Library and bilateral communication with the Library by way of mail due to the lack of other means of communication between the organizations. Adam L., CEO of Leonardo Treasury appointed Eugine O. as his deputy chief executive officer. In the meanwhile, the Library underwent its first major renovation, called Renovation 7, which took approximately a month and ended in February 2012, featuring art made by Board members resembling (at least we think) the works of the late artist Jackson Pollock. The Library's normal business, including more renovations including Renovation 8, resumed until the end of the 2011-2012 school year in May 2012, which began its 7-month hiatus. On the last day, the Head Librarian (and he admits this) proceeded to lacrimally (see footnotes) express his feelings, something that he is not known to do. It was a sad time for the members of the Library, but the Library was expected to reopen the following school year (September 2012) but unfortunately did not. The Library ceased to exist for seven months until January 22, 2013, when the Library began renovations for a reopening expected in the following days, with the same Head Librarian reinstated. The Board of Trustees will be reorganized and results will be announced in the coming weeks as of January 23, 2013.
