Springfield's New library is made possible through the munificence of Andrew Carnegie, with his gift of $200,000, citizens of Springfield. The building has ample room of 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 title. For the beauty of this artistic structure, its strength its strength and solidity, the city is indebted to the architect, Edward L. Tilton. J. E. & A. L. Pennock of Philadelphia are the builders.
