Library, Littleton, New Hampshire

[Z10553] In 1902, Littleton received a $15,000 grant from the Carnegie Foundation, the equivalent of $367,021 for 2009. Funded by Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie, 2509 Carnegie libraries were built between 1883 and 1929; 1689 in the United States alone.

Designed by Robert Coit in the Classical Revival style, the Littleton Public Library opened in 1906; its interior was renovated in 1960 and the Children's Room was recently renovated with an endowment from the Corey family. [Website]
