Perry Carnegie Library outside view

Perry’s commitment to having a public library is firmly rooted in the history of this community. From humble beginnings in a small reading room in the upper story of a building on the town square, the Library opened as a public library in 1906.

The city of Perry got a grant of $10,000 from Mr. Andrew Carnegie to build the current Perry Carnegie Library, which was completed in 1909.
