Delta Carnegie Library

In Delta, hundreds of people walk through a historic treasure every week—without even knowing it.

Delta’s first and only public library was dedicated on the evening of May 20, 1912, after more than a decade of planning and fundraising by the people of Delta.

Their tireless efforts secured the land and funds necessary to build an Andrew Carnegie public library.

The Delta Carnegie Library is one of the few Carnegie buildings remaining on the Western Slope still being used as a public library.  It is truly a rare and unique piece of history.

The building has seen several remodels and additions over the years, helping it to expand and keep up with demand as the city has expanded, serving literally hundreds of thousands of people every decade.

All of the updates have taken time and careful consideration to preserve the historic value of the building, while also continuing to provide much-needed library services to the community.

For over 100 years, the people of Delta have made the choice to invest in their future by investing in the library.
