Long Description:
Letters on 4 October and 9 December 1902 to Hanwell council from Carnegie, made an offer of £2,500. This was later confirmed to mean that it could be spent on the building and necessary furniture, such as book cases. However, in June 1903 it was said that the library was not to be part of another building, but could be on the same site. On 29 September 1903, James Bertram, Carnegie's private secretary, confirmed that the grant was increased to £3000.
The library was opened by Sir Clifton Robinson on Wednesday 27 September, 1905 and is still in use as a library.
