Yes, the Library with books – the actual Carnegie Library on Carson St. – which should not be confused with the bar named “The Library” which is also on Carson St.  just a block away.  The bar has drinks but not many books.

On May 20 you will be able to drink in the actual library library – for their Deconstruction Party.  A fundraiser to benefit the library and a chance to check out the acutal library building which is over 100 years old.
