Article: Carnegie Public Library blends history with new technologies, services

From the Las Vegas Optic

The Carnegie Public Library has been serving the people of Las Vegas since 1904. Though it was one of three libraries in New Mexico funded with grants from steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, it is now the only one in the state still serving as a library.

Today, the City of Las Vegas operates the library, but much of its funding comes from the nonprofit group Friends of the Carnegie Public Library, which offers book sales and other fundraisers throughout the year.

That funding is used to provide services to the community, including some services patrons may not know about, like portable Wi-Fi hotspots from Verizon Wireless.
