Carnegie Library

105 West Madison Street

The Carnegie Library was established in 1909. L. B. Reid, superintendent of Houston schools wrote to Andrew Carnegie in 1908 expressing a need for a public library. Having lived in Tyler, Texas, Mr. Reid was familiar with such a library near there. Mr. Carnegie sent $6000 to the city and with that, the first Carnegie Library in Mississippi was established.
