About Carnegie Library

Carnegie Library is one of the many small-town libraries throughout the United States built with a grant from tycoon and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Designed by Rapp and Rapp architects, modeled after Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello, the library is a fine example of Georgian Revival architecture. It is one of a handful of Carnegie Libraries that still operates like a library.

Carnegie Public Library Oral History Project with Spanish Speaking Old Timers (MSS 776).

A Collaboration with University of New Mexico Zimmerman Library and City of Las Vegas Carnegie Library. Zimmerman Library converted Carnegie's audio cassette collection of old spanish speaking interviews from longlife residents in Las Vegas, surrounding areas and Northern New Mexico. We are grateful for the collaboration with UNM Zimmerman Library to make these audio interviews accessible online to reach more residents in our area and throughout the state and further.

Special thanks to Samuel Sisneros, archivist at the Center for Southwest Research, Zimmerman Library, UNM, for making this possible.
