Carnegie Libraries of Virginia, West Virginia, & Washington DC

 Virginia

 West Virginia 
Huntington

1901 grant; 1904 building; 1980 replacement.

 

But wait! The building is reused as Huntington Junior College.

Parkersburg

Late 1903 grant; 1905 building; replaced in 1976.

 

But wait! It held the largest bookstore (Trans-Allegheny Books) in West Virginia. In 2010, it closed. As far as I know, it's in probate limbo today.

 Washington, DC 

When redoing my pages, I realized that the District of Columbia also had three branch Carnegie Libraries.

 

This building was in use from 1903 to 1970. It now houses the Historical Society of Washington, D.C.

Published by the Washington Evening & Sunday Star, whose building is in the vignette.

By the Columbia Card Co.
