  • (Photograph by Balthazar Korab)

Clancy designed the Carnegie library in the Beaux-Arts classical style. Standing prominently on an elevated corner site, the former library is built solidly and substantially of gray Amberg, Wisconsin, stone and rests on a rough-faced rusticated stone basement foundation. A pedimented and balconied entrance pavilion with fluted Ionic columns covers one half of the front and is flanked by penciled and arcaded walls. W. H. Sweet built the library.
