New Centennial Sign at Carnegie Library

Winamac’s Carnegie Library is recognizing its centennial and a new sign to commemorate the event now sits in front of the library.

A time capsule is included in the brick sign that will be opened in 50 years. The time capsule includes memorabilia from Indiana’s bicentennial, a letter to the library board’s future trustees, and technology currently being used by the library patrons and staff.

The sign also features a list of the Carnegie-era board members, the names of the centennial year board members, an acknowledgement of benefactor Andrew Carnegie, and recognition of the Town of Winamac as the organization’s establishing body. A quote from Andrew Carnegie occupies one side of the sign.

Generous donations to the Pulaski County Public Library’s Gift and Memorial Fund helped make this centennial celebration project a reality. For more information on giving opportunities at the library, call the staff at (574) 946-3432 or visit this link.
