      (Mr. DesJARLAIS asked and was given permission to address the House 
    for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
      Mr. DesJARLAIS. Mr. Speaker, I stand before you today to commend 
    Magness Library on its 100 years of service to the people of 
    McMinnville in the Fourth District of Tennessee.
      Magness Library began as a service project in July 1913 by Mrs. Mary 
    Cunningham and the McMinnville Women's Civic League, with benefactors 
    Colonel Gentry Moffitt and W.H. Magness, to provide a rest stop for 
    families coming into town to sell and trade. In 1917, the library moved 
    to its current location on the corner of Chancery and Main Street, and 
    in 1946, Magness Library joined the Tennessee State Library and 
      Thanks to generous donations from thousands of patrons, the Magness 
    Library flourished into one of the longest running libraries in our 
    State over the years. The library provides invaluable services to 
    McMinnville, including a strong summer reading program for children and 
    genealogy research for adults.
      Congratulations to the Magness Library on their centennial, and I 
    look forward to seeing their successful future endeavors.
