The Carnegie Free Library in San Fernando is named for a Scottish-born American philanthropist named Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie gave the Borough Council 2,500 pounds for the project in 1911 and eight years later, the library opened its doors. Its intricate concrete design, particularly the main entrance on High Street, is quite an eye catcher. The library currently has a membership of over 17,000 and offers diverse volumes to every age group. The library also facilitates children's outreach programs, as well as competitions for children, storytelling, class visits, book talks, workshops on culture, arts and crafts, and reading.
