The Mission of Cannon Free Library is to provide resources, services and programs necessary to meet the informational and educational needs of the residents of the Town of Delhi and the surrounding towns.

Mr. Henry Cannon a progressive benefactor born in Delhi in 1850 began his career at the Delaware National Bank of Delhi. Mr. Cannon founded two banks in Minnesota and was later appointed Comptroller of the Currency by President Arthur in 1884.

Almost a century later, our library is still supported by the Cannons. We do not receive any local tax dollars and we are delighted to continue the Cannon Legacy of service to the community.
