The Savage Library is a branch of the Scott County library system. This countywide system is part of the greater metropolitan system - MELSA - which allows library cardholders access to Hennepin, Carver and Ramsey County libraries, as well as the Minneapolis and St. Paul Public libraries. In fact, your Savage library card may be used at most public libraries in the state of Minnesota!
While visiting the Savage Branch of the Scott County Library System, be sure to check out the Heritage Room, a historical museum of artifacts and literary archive of Savage history. The Heritage Room was established as a joint partnership between the library system, the City of Savage and the Dan Patch Historical Society in 1997. When the city was planning to build a new public library the mayor and city council wanted a space included to promote the rich history of the city.
The historical aspects of the building include a display room at the entrance with a sulky, a Dan Patch wagon, and items from the International Stock Food Farm. In the Heritage Room located in the interior of the room are two display cases containing such items as the M.W. Savage catalog, buttons from all of the Dan Patch Days, M.W. Savage stationary, horseshoes, Dan Patch collector whiskey bottle, tobacco tin, items from Cargill, Camp Savage and other collectibles.
