The Carnegie Public Library in Bradford, PA was founded in 1900 after a $30,000 grant from Andrew Carnegie to combine Bradford's existing public libraries (the first of which was established in 1879 as the "free reading room").
The library was maintained until 1991, when the public library was moved to a new location, due to building maintenance concerns. The building was vacant for a year and a half, when it was then sold to Carnegie's Inc. in 1993 with plans to convert the top floor into the Beefeaters restaurant, which is still in operation today.
