Title The Carnegie Manti Public Library
Description ulatlon was that the city would guarantee a maintainance fund of $1,000 per year. Representatives of the L. D. S. Church offered to exchange the lot now occupied by the church-owned Council House for a strip of land one rod wide extending the full length of the City Hall block, adjoin-ing the North Ward Chapel grounds. Manti City Council gladly made the exchange. 22 July 1910 ... A Carnegie Library for Manti is now assured as long as the cost of the building does not exceed $10,000. Payments for the building are to be made on the installment plan of $2,000 or $3,000 as required. The building is to be a handsome structure, and when it is completed there will then be five buildings on this school block. They are: The Manti Tabernacle and annex, the red brick and sandstone elementary school building, the shop and rest room building, the white brick high school building, and now the public library building. 6 January 1911 ... The Manti Carnegie Public Library is soon to be finished. It will be a "free' ' library with reading rooms and a large lecture room in the basement. This building is being built for the use of the people. The building without grounds is valued at $11,000. The ground was secured by trade with the L. D. S. Church Corporation. Mr. Carnegie gave Manti City $10,000. The building is to belong to the City of Manti, but they must furnish $1,000 per year for its maintainance. Estimates are the furnishings, shelving, tables, chairs, etc., will cost from $1,500 to $2,000. A library board is to be formed to control and manage the library. This is to be a non-partisan committee to serve without pay. -105-
