History

Built in 1892, the Yeatman Library was Gibsonton's sole cultural and educational center for over forty years. Funded by banking giant Edward Sawday in an uncharacteristically generous moment and named after the Yeatman family, one of Malton's early political dynasties, the library is of average size for Malton. However, its collection of religious and legislative texts, courtesy of St. Matthew's Cathedral and the Yeatman clan, is among the best in Malton. Its importance in the suburb has diminished with the rise of museums in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Furthermore, its lack of a children's section has kept elementary school students from Amatt Place School away.

In the late 1990s, Yeatman went under renovation to restore its holdings to their original size. A new group of library enthusiasts have recently been forming around the library. The Yeatman Communications Group was founded among these enthusiastic bibliophiles.

Since the the outbreak, most of the texts have been looted or evacuated, but drifters looking for an ego boost can still walk away with a 12th century manuscript if the dig around long enough.

Barricade Policy

The Gibsonton Barricade Plan calls for the Yeatman Library to be Extremely Heavily Barricaded at all times.

Current Status

In September of 2010, Yeatman Library once again began transmission of the MPM and 29.00 Radio Frequency, courtesy of Yeatman Communications.

In March of 2009, Yeatman Library was secured, powered, and maintained by MGB member Luther Wassczynski. In addition to maintaining the phone mast on top of the building, Wassczynski claimed the unused radio transmitter. The frequency is set to 26.76 MHz, and the new pirate radio station is known as KMGB. The station broadcasts a message of hope to the people of Gibsonton, as well as some awesome tunes - from punk rock to old school rap.
