Dublin Carnegie

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Dublin’s Carnegie Library was constructed in 1904. Andrew Carnegie funded $10,000 towards the construction of Dublin’s Carnegie Library with the condition that the City of Dublin provide at least $1,000 annually to the library and the community match Carnegie’s $10,000 gift. Hal M. Stanley, a prominent public servant and member of the board of education, led the effort to convince the city to accept Carnegie’s gift. This iconic building served as a library and museum until reimagined in 2014 as an art gallery, Downtown Visitors Center, and event venue. The Dublin Carnegie is located at 314 Academy
