Public Library, North Manchester, Indiana

[LIB1935] On April 4, 1912, North Manchester Public Library's 2,300 sq. ft. Carnegie building opened with 1,700 books. The Carnegie building, significant in that it is one of the few libraries built by Andrew Carnegie that featured an auditorium, served as the library through September 1995, basically unchanged. In 1930, the children's department was opened on the second floor, which had been previously used as the auditorium. [Website]
