Connecticut’s Six* Carnegie Libraries Still Operating as Libraries
*A seventh, in Unionville (Farmington) deserves special mention as it is now a museum.
There were 11 total Carnegie Libraries built in Connecticut. Today, only six remain as libraries. Back in the day, wealthy business magnates sometimes did cool philanthropic things like give money for libraries all over the world. Andrew Carnegie was one such rich guy, helping to build around 2,500 libraries around the world.
