Wikipedia Description: Carnegie Library of Washington D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Carnegie Library of Washington D.C. is situated in Mount Vernon Square, Washington, D.C.. Donated to the public by entrepreneur Andrew Carnegie, it was dedicated on January 7, 1903. It was designed by the New York firm of Ackerman & Ross in the style of [Beaux-Arts architecture]].
It was the first Carnegie library in Washington, D.C. and it was the first public library.
It was used as the central public library for Washington, D.C. for almost 70 years before it became overcrowded. The central library was then moved to Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. After being shut down for ten years it was renovated as part of University of the District of Columbia. Currently it is used by the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. and Events DC.
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

2021 photos: It's too early to have anything but hope for this year. With luck, the restoration of sanity in the White House for a change and the rapid roll-out of vaccines will eventually return the year to one of my normal ones.
