Description:

viewed from Central High School. SPRINGFIELD'S NEW LIBRARY is made possible through the munificence of Andrew Carnegie, with his gift of $200,000, supplemented by gifts of $155,000 from 378 public-spirited citizens of Springfield. The building has ample room for 500,000 books. The general architecture is Italian Renaissance. The base of the building is Pink Granite and the principal material used is White Marble. White Terra Cotta makes an appropriate trim; the roof is a green tile. For the beauty of this artistic structure, its strength and solidity, the city is indebted to the architect, Edward L. Tilton. J.E.& A. L. Pennock of Philadelphia are the builders
