Age 18

The first Missouri State Library was established by law on January 22, 1829. This law was created due to the large amount of public documents which had been collected in the office of Missouri's secretary of state. The library included documentation of the actions of the Missouri senate and house. The documents were cataloged and made available to the public. The public had access to any of the books in the library from sunup to sundown on any day except Sunday.

Name Meaning

1 Scottish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cionaodha or Mac Cionaoith ‘son of Cionaodh’, a personal name which is probably composed of the elements cion ‘respect’, ‘affection’ + Aodh, a Gaelic personal name, originally the name of the Celtic god of fire. The personal name thus probably means ‘beloved of Aodh’.2 Northern Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Coinnigh ‘son of Coinneach’, an Old Irish personal name equivalent to Scottish Kenneth . Compare Kenny . Also the Scottish name as in 1.
