Carnegie Library in Ripon, Wisconsin

Ripon, Wisconsin's Carnegie library building now houses administrative offices for Ripon College.  The Ripon Public Library is located in a newer facility that was completed in 1972.

As with most Carnegie library buildings, especially those in smaller communities, a variety of souvenir artifacts were created to show off the new Ripon Public Library. During July and August, 2008 you can see these souvenirs of the Carnegie library in Ripon along with many more for other Wisconsin libraries at the Ripon Public Library.  To see an image of the entire exhibit click here.
