Built in 1914, The Lincoln Carnegie Library is one of 59 libraries built in Kansas by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Today, it is just one of 25 still in use for that purpose. The beautiful post rock limestone building was expanded in 2008-09, with a modern elevator, reading room, Kansas/Lincoln County room, and meeting room.
New historical preservation is about to begin in 2021 with a Historic Preservation grant to update windows.
