The Carnegie Library

A little over a century ago, American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie laid the groundwork for today’s modern information network by donating millions of dollars toward the design, construction and development of libraries in Canada and around the world. Victoria’s Carnegie Library was completed in 1905, and is an important historic architectural landmark (so important there’s a Canadian postage stamp that commemorates it).
