Visit Abilene's own Carnegie Library, first completed in 1908 and further added on in 1934, thanks to the WPA project. In 1974, the library was added on again, connecting to the fire and police departments. Mr. Carnegie wanted his money to be used for “real and permanent good in this world.” One can only assume that Mr. Carnegie would be very pleased, that years later what is now known as the Carnegie level of the library is used daily, which houses the Jordan room and the genealogy room. 

Outside are bronze statues of famous Americans, Benjamin Franklin, and one of many statues throughout Abilene.
