Inscription.  Built in 1913-14, the Richfield Carnegie Library is one of 23 Carnegie Libraries in Utah and one of over 1650 library buildings in the United States that were built by millionaire/philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie donated the entire cost of the building on the condition that the town provide the land, books, librarian and an annual maintenance budget. The Richfield Carnegie Library is the only Carnegie Library designed in the Craftsman Style and is one of the very few examples of the Craftsmen Style on a non-residential building in the state. The Richfield Carnegie Library was designed and built by Archibald G. Young, a local architect/builder, who is credited with constructing numerous buildings in the Richfield area.
