Many Americans first entered the worlds of information and imagination offered by reading when they walked through the front doors of a Carnegie library. One of 19th-century industrialist Andrew Carnegie’s many philanthropies, these libraries entertained and educated millions. Between 1886 and 1919, Carnegie’s donations of more than $40 million paid for 1,679 new library buildings in communities large and small across America. Jefferson’s library, built in 1907, is one of only five Carnegie Libraries serving its original function in Texas today.
Operating as a non-profit organization, the library board is committed to the preservation, maintenance and full usage of this historic landmark. The library depends on donations and the fund raising efforts of the Friends of the Jefferson Carnegie Library. All proceeds from the golf tournament will be used to operate the library and to preserve a part of history.
