Very informative....as your blogs always are. I have to google the Carnegie Library of Sandusky, OH. My brother and I travel around looking for old Carnegie's that were built at the turn or early in the 20th century. Thanks for showcasing that photo....great tip for us.

I am pretty sure that Milan and Norwalk have Carnegie buildings also...Sandusky Library used to have a music hall in it....in the early part of the 1900's...and of course it was called "Carnegie Hall."
