Former Carnegie Library - Wylie Avenue Branch

Brief History

Built in 1899, this library branch was a community institution and reservoir of resources on black history. In the 1940s, it became an important educational institution for blacks. Many students from the community did their homework here. The building is now used as a mosque.
