Yorkville Library in Toronto
Canada is also home to an impressive number of Carnegie libraries with 125, including this one in Toronto. In 1903, Carnegie gave $350,000, which was used to build a main library and three branches. The Yorkville Library was the first one built with the grant money, according to its website. Designed by Robert McCallum, the Beaux-Arts design, it "features two pairs of columns, a projected portico, Doric capitals, a bracketed cornice, and stone quoins, band courses and keystones."
The building had a major renovation in 1978 (including an addition) and is listed on Toronto's Inventory of Heritage Properties.
