1. Carnegie Library Marker
Inscription.  This library was donated to Hibbing by Andrew C. Carnegie. Mr. Carnegie was a financier who made his fortune in steel.

The library was finer than many in larger cities. It had all the major books available at the time.

When the building was demolished, the paintings hanging in the library were all that were saved. They can be seen at the First Settlers Museum, the Hibbing Library and the First Bank in Hibbing.
