A Brief History of the Building

1903:  Andrew Carnegie gave $50,000 to Lynn to build two branch libraries.

1990s-early 2000s:  This branch was closed due to budget cuts.

The building has been sold but appears to currently be vacant.

Information was supplied by the Lynn Public Library and Pauline Sabino.
