Long Description:
The Bellevue Library Association, formed in 1891, did not have a permanent home for their books until the Carnegie Library was built in 1904. Bellevue, a railroad town, also found support from the New Yor, Chicago, and St. Louis Railway Co., and from a local citizen who contributed $5000 for books. Robert E. Schmidt of Chicago designed the gray pressed brick and limestone building, which was considered modern for its time. The building received a 9000 square foot addition in 1987, and is still in use as a library today.
