Fodor's Review

In the early 20th century philanthropist Andrew Carnegie told Americans he would build them elegant libraries if they would fill them with books. A community garden flanks part of the yellow-brick library (completely renovated in 2008) that Carnegie financed, and there's a deck (accessed through the children's book room) with picnic tables where you can relax and admire Carnegie's inspired structure.
