"I believe that a library outranks any other one thing that a community can do to benefit its people." - Andrew Carnegie

Beloved for generations since it first opened in 1903, the city-owned and operated Carnegie Library was returned to library service September 15, 2009. The Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation, a 501(c)-3 charitable corporation, was founded in 2008 to fund and further enhance library programming, literacy and learning for all ages ... honoring the legacy of its great benefactor, Andrew Carnegie.

Please visit our site and discover how you can become involved as a patron, supporter and advocate of the dynamic, relevant and continually inventive Newnan Carnegie Library!

Thank you Auburn University's Department of History for the 2014 series of “Lasting Legacies of the Past” - what a joy it is to explore the relevancy of the past through the lens of some of the finest scholars of history in our country.
