Restored by the City of Newnan, the Carnegie has brought back library-type services in the downtown area. The bottom floor of the building serves as a reading room and the second floor as a meeting space. Among its many offerings, the Carnegie brings popular magazines and newspapers, computer workstations and wi-fi access, a gallery for local exhibits, meeting rooms with warming kitchen and programs for adults and children. The Carnegie will serve the public with a non-circulating reading room, children’s area, and an art gallery. It seeks to be an integral part of the community by offering print and electronic materials.

The Carnegie was funded by the general fund and partly by a 2007 SPLOST. The Carnegie’s cost to be renovated was over $1.5 million dollars to the city.
