The Carnegie Center is housed in the first library in Lexington, sitting at the foot of historic Gratz Park downtown. I’ve always wanted to go in ever since I moved here – it’s in my neighborhood and I walk by it all the time. It was so pretty and light. Even though it’s not a traditional library anymore, it is still filled with books and cozy places to read – a bibliophile’s dream. The goal of the Carnegie Center is to create and support programs that foster literacy and learning as a lifelong process for all citizens. Pretty great.
It was so quiet and peaceful in there, just like a library. My camera seemed so loud I kept wanting to shush myself.
This is another non-profit that will be in the Good Giving Guide this holiday season!
