Iowa City Carnegie Library Addition, 1963

An addition of 14,000 square-feet was built onto the Carnegie building and dedicated on Sunday, November 10, 1963. The need for more library space was primarily attributed to an increased population and a record-breaking amount of library circulation. When completed, this addition enclosed the east side of the original building entirely.
