Dallas Public Library

Initiated by the Dallas Federation of Women's Clubs, the Library grew out of, among others, a grant from steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie. It became a War Information Center during WWII, and the decades after its expansion led to the creation of new branches in other parts of the city.
