Old Public Library, Sterling, Colorado

As I was going through Sterling, Colorado on my way home, it just seemed like the size and age of town that might have a Carnegie Library building in it. So I decided to drive around a bit – as I’ve been looking for these buildings, I’m getting a second sense of where in a town they might be found – and soon came across this delightfully preserved gem.

Surrounded by trees on a quiet street just a two blocks from the center of town – and near some glorious old church buildings – the public library that was funded by Andrew Carnegie has now been converted to a bed-and-breakfast.

A plaque indicates that it was built in 1916 and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
