Carnegie Library Doors Open Brampton

Carnegie Library

The Carnegie Library was constructed with a donation of $12,000 from American steel magnate Andrew Carnegie. Between 1881 and 1917, Carnegie financed the construction of thousands of free libraries across Canada and around the world. Like most of Carnegie’s libraries, this building was built in the classical beaux arts style, characterized by an elaborate entranceway, and heavy, classically inspired ornamentation.
