1949 Carnegie Library, Tucson, Arizona


Tucson’s Carnegie Library was designed by Henry Trost and opened in 1901. The building has suffered a variety of indignities, including the collapse of its dome and the construction of a massive wall that surrounds and obscures the building. It was home to the public library until the completion of the Main Library on Stone Avenue in 1990. The Tucson Children’s Museum moved in the next year. [Thanks to Downtown Tucson Partnership, /]
