Photographer's Note

This Beaux Arts style red brick building is now part of Peterborough's City Hall. It was built in 1910 with funds from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation as a free public library building. The steeple of the George Street United Church , another Peterboroug landmark, is visible behind the library building. The Carnegie Foundation supported the building of free public libraries around the world, 125 in Canada. I posted previously a picture of another Canegie supported library building in Paris, Ontario.
