Entrance to Stirling Central Library
Entrance to Stirling Central Library
Once again we find Andrew Carnegie at work in benefiting the public. After he received the freedom of the burgh the foundation stone was laid in 1902 and the building was completed by 1904. The library is a superb example of Scots Baronial architecture by Harvey Ramsay Taylor of Edinburgh and the entrance, with its columns, displays classical influences. Still in use as a library, unlike so many others, it is also listed by Historic Environment Scotland as Grade B.
