Quilter Diane Schonauer

Sponsors Anderson Prickly Fingers Quilt Guild & David and Diane Schonauer

The Main Library has been hosting the Anderson Prickly Fingers Quilt Guild’s meetings for many years. To honor that long‐standing relationship and to celebrate National Library week, the Guild and one of its members, Diane Schonauer and husband David, decided to co‐sponsor the quilt panel based on a mini quilt Diane made in 2011.

The quilt block is mounted on the west side of the Anderson County Main Library that faces McDuffie Street.

From its first days as a Library Association in 1840 to becoming the Carnegie-endowed Anderson Public Library in 1908 (its building is now the site of the Anderson Arts Council), today’s Anderson County Library has grown with the community. The East Greenville Street main library was dedicated in 1971. Over the next 20 years, a growing population meant more patrons, more needed services, more books and materials. With the coming of the 1990s, computers were needed as well as other technology. Groundbreaking for the new library took place in the winter of 1997. The old library on Greenville Street is now the site of the Anderson County Museum.
