Carnegie Library, Janesville, Wisconsin

[LIB11003] According to documents found in our Local History Database, the public library dates
back to 1865, when a group of Janesville business men formed the Young Men's Association, to furnish entertainment and education. They commenced the acquisition of a library which was circulated among the members at a small cost per year. The library then was located in the Lappin Building, called the post office building, at the end of Milwaukee Street bridge. [Wesbite]
