I believe that a library outranks any other one thing that a community can do to benefit its people.” – Andrew Carnegie

Beloved for generations since it first opened in 1903, the city-owned and operated Carnegie Library was returned to library service September 15, 2009. The Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation, a 501(c)-3 charitable corporation, was founded in 2008 to fund and further enhance library programming, literacy and learning for all ages … honoring the legacy of its great benefactor, Andrew Carnegie.
