Light hill library to put the Honmas and collection of books by person of local volunteer in
In 1925 (Taisho 14), we collected tens of thousands of points of precious collection of books by person of volunteer mainly on the collection of books of the Honmas and were built.
With the Sakata's first steel reinforced concrete building, the design appearance becomes very unique, too.
It was used widely as municipal library until central library was established in general Cultural Center.
