Leasure also played a key role in the founding of the public library in
Auburn and the erection of the Eckhart Public Library. She was a
popular public persona
in the community, taking an active role in the Women's Christian
Temperance Union and literary circles. She was also a published author,
poet and speaker. The DeKalb County Historian, John Bry, has located the
modern day descendants of this remarkable and
honorable woman. Join the library in welcoming the Leasure family back
to Auburn and celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. Lida
Leasure. Local history lovers will want to attend this special event.
