History  

The Leipsic Edwards Gamper Memorial Location is located in a victorian house built in 1894 by the John Edwards Family. In 1977, John Edwards' granddaughter, Harriett Edwards Gamper, bought out the other heirs and gave the house to the Village of Leipsic to be used for a library. The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior on December 1978, and officially became a library in April of 1979. Substations, in various locations, served Leipsic 1941-1945, then moved to a room of the Town Hall in the City Building.

Funding for the library is provided from the Putnam County District Library operating budget.
