COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

Historical Note:  The largest book lender in Boynton Beach before the City Library was the Boynton Woman’s Club; it was often referred to in the newspapers of the time as the public library. The City of Boynton paid the Woman’s Club librarian’s salary by the mid-1954. Other sources for lending books included several organizations that had small lending libraries, including the Jaycee Club; the postmaster Ethel Pierce; and each local school had a library for its students. Boynton Beach residents also used the Palm Beach, Lake Worth, and Delray libraries.  However, as the population of Boynton Beach expanded, the need for a full service library increased. By the late 1950s, the library room in the Woman’s Club was overcrowded and residents complained that the building was on a busy street, unsafe for children to walk alone. Also, African-Americans were not welcome in the Boynton Woman's Club at that time. The Club did launch a project to set up a library in the African-American community;1 in 1963, the Club noted that efforts to get a local African-American organization interested in setting up a lending library, to which they would contribute books, were unsuccessful.2  

The  Boynton Woman's Club was significant in establishing a full service City Library.  The Woman’s Club library committee agreed to give its library books and shelving to the city if the City Council agreed to provide a facility for the books, employ a professionally trained librarian, and installed two of the Women’s Club members on the library advisory board for five years.  In 1960, the city of Boynton Beach purchased and expanded a residential home located at 116 S. Seacrest Boulevard (at the corner of Seacrest and Ocean Avenue) to serve as the library, with a seating capacity of 34. Within months the library, which was open 34 hours per week, had 858 borrowers and had collected 8,050 volumes. The City Council budgeted $10,000 to expand the building in response to the growing needs. In 1966, another addition was made to the building, and in 1968, the members of the newly formed Boynton Beach Historical Society dedicated a new Florida Room, enlarging the library to 4,000 square feet.  In response to increasing needs for more space and services, a 12,000 square foot structure, located next to the existing library, was built and dedicated in 1974; it included a separate children’s area, a young adult area, a large meeting room, a typing room, a music room, and a quiet study area. The library catalog was automated in 1986. In 2003, the firm of Schenkel Shultz Architecture designed a new 35,166 square foot two-story addition to the building, which opened to the public in March 2008 and the original 27,698 square foot facility was totally renovated and opened in March 2009. The 2009 facility was equipped with study rooms, meeting spaces including a large meeting room with a capacity for 150 people, a computer lab, Wi-Fi (wireless Internet service), a 1,500 square foot climate controlled Local History & Archives Department, and a café. 

There has been at least one effort to create a satellite branch, a short-lived (about 1962 to 1964) site in the Wilson Recreational Building.

In 2019, the Seacrest Boulevard library was torn down with plans for a new facility on the same site, which will be shared with City offices. The Boynton Beach City Library has taken temporary space at the corner of Boynton Beach Blvd and Federal Highway.

Folder 12: Moore, Margareta (a presentation by Lillian Freda Oyer)

  • Margretta Moore Pierce was one of many children born to Mary Bingham and William Moore, a soldier who was stationed at several military camps in the mid-west; they both died from “galloping consumption.” Margretta went to live with her married sister Kate in Waukegan, Illinois, and there met shipwrecked seaman Hannibal Pierce and married him in 1858. By 1871, she had buried three young children and was living in Chicago. Margretta, Hannibal, their child Charlie, and Margretta’s brother William Moore left Chicago for Florida in late 1871. They lived in several places, including Ankona, Fort Pierce, and Lake Worth. Husband Hannibal was employed at Jupiter Lighthouse, Biscayne Bay House of Refuge, and the Orange Grove House of Refuge at Delray Beach, where she had her last child, Lillie. However, their main home was Hypoluxo Island, where they were among the first homesteaders in the area.
  • Summary: In this presentation on the life of her grandmother, Margretta Moore Pierce (1840-1912), given to the Boynton Beach Historical Society on 29 October 1970, Freda Oyer draws on family papers from several sources to construct a descriptive talk of what life was like on the south Florida frontier in the 1870s. She includes some details of her great-grandmother’s life (Mary Bingham Moore), her grandmother’s marriage to grandfather Hannibal Pierce, their leaving Chicago shortly after the Chicago fire of 1871 on the boat Fairy Belle, their house burning down in Ankona, recovering ship wreckage while Hannibal was the Assistant Lighthouse keeper at the Jupiter Lighthouse, enduring a hurricane under a boat while moving to Hypoluxo Island, and details of the first Christmas dinner in south Florida (possum and biscuits were served). Also mentions life at the House of Refuge in Biscayne Bay and later teaching her granddaughter, the author, how to read.
