Description

Carnegie Library, Valdosta, GA.

This library building was constructed in 1913, with the grant of $ 15,000, they received from Andrew Carnegie. This was the first public building designed by local architect Lloyd B. Greer and was formally opened June 1914. The facility became inadequate, and the South Ga. Regional Library was built on Woodrow Wilson Dr. in 1968. Until 1976 the Carnegie Library was a branch library.

In April 1977, the Lowndes County Historical Society & Museum occupied the building, using it as a museum and its headquarters. The Lowndes County Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the rich history of Valdosta and Lowndes County, Georgia. The society operates the Lowndes County Historical Museum.
