TF6219 : Library, King's Lynn

taken 10 years ago, near to King's Lynn, Norfolk, Great Britain

Library, King's Lynn
Library, King's Lynn
The King's Lynn library was funded and opened by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. It is possible that he chose King's Lynn as a site for the library due to its close proximity to the Royal residence in Sandringham in an attempt to get a knighthood - however, this is probably a cynical point of view given Carnegie's history of financing libraries across the world, as well as his positive comments regarding King's Lynn and similar towns in his autobiography.
The library is still in use today and is still the town's primary library, opening Monday to Saturday.
