The following is from the book "History of Nemaha County Kansas" by Ralph Tennal, 1916. Chapter 14, "Centralia" page 129, paragraph 2.
"Another library in Centralia was presented to the public schools by A. Oberndorf, owner of the Eleanora Fruit and Poultry farm, in memory of his little daughter, Adele. There are 1,800 children's books in this collection."
I do not find any other mention of A. Oberndorf. There are hundreds of names but the book is not fully indexed so difficult to find a particular name without reading page by page. I will leave a message if I find any thing else. Sharon
