Workers began renovation at the old Masonic Temple building, preparing it for occupation by the Hastings Memorial Library. Nearly $3,000 was saved by the effort of members of the library board and building committee by doing some of the work themselves during the demolition phase of knocking out a wall, tearing out closets and flooring that housed cold air returns.

Grant was host to a five-room cottage which was on its way to from Benkelman to Ogallala. The house was mounted on a large semi-trailer. The law required that houses and other large objects be moved only between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m., so it was necessary for the house to remain in Grant overnight.
