A Carnegie Library in Two Harbors, MN

A couple of weekends ago, Hubby, Parents, & I ended up in two Harbors, MN for a couple of hours. After looking at Lake Superior and having a quick sandwich, we decided lunch would best be supplemented not with more sightseeing, but with ice cream. In walking to the Dairy Queen for Hubby’s chocolate malt and my Brownie Batter Blizzard (capital letters intentional), we happened across a gorgeous old Carnegie Library. Unfortunately my photography does the architecture no justice whatsoever, but here’s what I came home with:

Look at those big chunks of stone, the richness of the design, and its color alone! The library has a bland-looking modern addition (which is, I’m sure, much needed and well-used), so thank you, Two Harbors, for keeping the Carnegie portion, too.

    Thanks for sharing this. I’m trying to track down remaining Carnegie libraries in England and take photos whenever I find them. Good to see that many are still in use in the US too.
