Long Description:

Circa 1912-13

Carnegie Library Building 2009

Andrew Carnegie provided $10,000 for a public library to be constructed in Dallas, Oregon on 1911 December 7. A public library did exist in Dallas, prior to the Carnegie grant. Today, this Carnegie Library building is being used as a Children's Center, Kid's Inc., a child-resource referral center which is still an anchor for the community.

I find it interesting when looking at the photos that the stairway has been altered. Additionally the curved deck above the entry has been remodeled and the top parapet seems to have been removed at some point.
