The second location for the ICPL was at 212 East College Street in the Cannon & Pratt building opening in June of 1901. Today most of this site is occupied by the present public library building. While rent at this new location was an additional $125 per year, additional space, improved lighting, and more desirable library quarters were among the reasons for the move.
