Carnegie Library


Build in 1901 with the support of Andrew Carnegie, we are proud to be the OLDEST CONTINUALLY OPERATING CARNEGIE LIBRARY IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN. Located in the town of Ironwood in Gogebic County, our library is a beautiful historic building that has served the fine residents of our community for over 100 years. Our library’s original collection consisted of 7,800 books. Today our collection includes over 28,000 items. The library houses a unique collection of books and newspapers documenting the area’s history and works closely with the local genealogical and historical societies to preserve our past by archiving information of historic value.
