Another MN Carnegie Library for Sale

You can buy a Carnegie Library in Alexandria, MN, but you need to act quickly. The owner is accepting sealed bids for this restored Carnegie building on August 26, 2014. From the photos on the website advertising the building it looks in really great shape. According to the website: "The building was built in 1903, designed by Henry A. Foeller and fashioned as a public library.  In 1997, the building was sold to the current owner who substantially remodeled the interior". It was previously used to house law offices. I have a vintage Real Photo Postcard (see above) of the library. I did blog posts on the Duluth (MN) Carnegie Library on May 24, 2010 and on July 30, 2013 which was also for sale at one point. Other Carnegie library buildings that have been up for sale include the Rockport (MA) Carnegie Library and the Sterling (CO) Carnegie Library. Both of those buildings are being used as private residences now. The Carnegie Library building in Superior, WI may also still be up for sale.
