1942 Public Library, Kansas City, Kansas



Andrew Carnegie offered $75,000.00 for a library building on July 4, 1901. A site at Sixth and Minnesota Streets, called Huron Place or Huron Park, had been given to the city by the old town site company and was intended for the site of a seminary; however, the site was given to the board of education to use as a library location. W. W. Rose was engaged as the architect and the contract was given to F. A. Thompson.
