Description
Opened in 1904 and in operation until 1957, this classical revival style library was built with a $20,000 grant from Andrew Carnegie and designed by architects Burnham & Bliesner. After the building was declared unsafe in 1957, it was demolished a year later and replaced by a new library building in 1960.
