Long Description:
Text from Historical Marker:
"Prior to the construction of this building in 1902, the Sparta Free Library had several homes in the community. Schick and Roth, a LaCrosse architectural firm, designed the library building.

Steel magnate Andrew Carnegie provided construction funds. The Carnegie Foundation approved Sparta's application for $10,000 when the city agreed to allocate $1,000 annually to the library. The foundation funded 64 libraries in Wisconsin and 1,679 in the United States.

This property was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
