Inscription. In 1904, John E. Geyer and his business partner John D. Adams moved their wholesale grocery business into a building located on this site. The partners replaced that building with this structure, designed by Charles Thompson, in 1914. The Geyer and Adams Company operated here until 1954. The building was used as a warehouse until 1979 when Dwight "Buddy" Schaer acquired it. Farrel & Schaer Blueprint Company operated here until 2004.

Capital improvement bonds approved by Little Rock voters in 2004 and 2007 made possible the adaptive reuse of the building by the Central Arkansas Library System. Construction was completed in February 2009.
