No longer standing
Composed of a rectilinear, glass-enclosed front section and a drum-like rear section, the modest but strikingly modern library of pure geometry replaced the previous Carnegie Library of 1903 and contrasted with the predominant eclectic styles of its neighbors. It has been replaced by a larger facility.
