Welcome to Charleston Carnegie Public Library! We are located at 712 6th St, one block south of the Charleston square. The Library opened its doors to the public on January 11, 1904, partly due to a very generous donation from Andrew Carnegie. We are open Monday-Thursday 10-8 p.m., Friday-Saturday 10-6 p.m., and Sunday 1-5 p.m. We offer everything from public access computers to your favorite book on audio-cassette! Also, while you're here, please check out our expansion growing in the back, which will boast more space, a parking lot, study rooms, large meeting rooms, a teen room, and much more! For more information please call us at 217-345-4913 or visit us on the web at
