Welcome to the Dunkirk Public Library

Did You Know?

Our Carnegie Library turns 120 years old in 2024!

In 1904, Andrew Carnegie provided funding for the construction of a new Dunkirk Free Library.  Prior to his financial assistance, we shared space in the hospital.  By 1906 our new building was open for business!
