Happy birthday, YMI-attachment1

Pictured here in 1953, the Market Street Branch Library (called “the colored library” when it opened on Market Street in 1927) was housed in the YMI building. It remained in operation until 1966, when the library system desegregated. Photo from the N.C. Collection, Pack Memorial Library, Asheville, N.C.
