The rich philanthropist Andrew Carnegie initiated the construction of a large number of libraries in the country. One of the greatest examples of this good deed is the Richfield Carnegie Library which was constructed in 1913 and 1914.

What made the Richfield Carnegie Library special is that it is designed by a local architect, Archibald Young, who is best known for his works around the Richfield area. The structure is also notable for being one of the rare examples of the Craftsmen Style architecture that is not a residential building.

The Richfield Carnegie Library may just be only one of the 1650 Carnegie libraries in the country, but it surely made its mark by being a part of the National Register of Historic Places.
