More than 2500 Carnegie library buildings were built between 1881 and 1919. Many of the buildings still exist today and are used for various purposes. This category will list these buildings regardless of their use today.
Expanded Description:
The Carnegie libraries were funded with grants from steel businessman Andrew Carnegie. The first was funded in 1881 in his hometown of Dunfermline, Scotland. A total of 2509 Carnegie Library buildings were built. These libraries were built in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and various Caribbean countries. Many of these library buildings have been demolished over the years, while others have been converted to various uses besides their original purposes. The intent of this category is to locate as many of the remaining buildings and record their current use.
