Welcome to The Newnan Carnegie

The mission of the Carnegie is to provide a central gathering place that serves residents of all ages and backgrounds as well as community organizations with a non-circulating reading room, children’s area, and meeting spaces enhanced by an art gallery.  It seeks to be an integral part of the community by offering print and electronic materials, services, and programs to adults and children to enrich daily lives.
