Built in 1913 and occupied in 1914, this Classical Revival building served as Hopkinsville’s public library until the need for a larger building arose in 1976. One of 27 Carnegie Libraries built in Kentucky; it will reopen as the Hopkinsville Carnegie Library of Kentucky Architecture. It will be a multi-purpose cultural facility. In addition to being a repository for information on Kentucky architects, it will also be a facility for regularly scheduled lectures on architecture. There will be gallery space, with exhibitions that will change every 60 days.
Perhaps the Carnegie Library’s most important function will be the after school tutoring programs to help students of all ages with their writing skills.
