Public Library, New Rochelle, New York

[LIB1635] In the early 1900s, New Rochelle received $60,000 from Andrew Carnegie to build a new library. The building opened May 11, 1914 at Pintard Avenue and Main Street. It remained at that site with the addition of a multi-level extension in 1928, for 65 years.
