Carnegie Library session

Kentucky had many less Carnegie libraries than Indiana, which had the most, and Ohio, which was fifth. Built between 1899 and 1908 in Kentucky, few are still libraries today, but some are used as civic buildings or museums. The community had to provide the land and 10% of the cost of the building. Applying for a library involved writing a letter about the community and very few requests were denied.
