EDGEWATER, N.J. — The 100th anniversary of the Carnegie Library building in Edgewater is Monday, Feb. 8 and the community is planning celebrations.

To commemorate this centennial, the board of trustees and staff of the library have asked Edgewater officials for a formal proclamation recognizing the month of February, 2016 as "Edgewater Public Library Month."

The library plans on commemorating Monday, Feb. 8 with a "Birthday Breakfast" for all library patrons. Throughout that day, the library will have a celebration of reading and giveaways.

During the month of February and the remainder of the year, the library will hold a number of other events that celebrate the Centennial of the Carnegie Building.

On Feb. 8 in 1916, the library opened its doors to the public at a dedication ceremony, with a first full day of service on Wednesday, Feb. 9. The building was erected with $15,000 from the Carnegie Corporation under the direction and approval of philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

Ground was broken July 26, 1915, with the cornerstone being set in place in August, 1915 and construction completed between August 1915 and February 1916.
