The Upland Public Library Today
Since its renovation the Carnegie has been host to weddings, receptions and various meetings for both the city and the public. The new Carnegie features one large space with a full attached kitchen, large restroom and elevator. The bottom floor of the Carnegie building houses the Upland Library’s Literacy and homework help center. The Carnegie is also used for the library’s larger programs, like Summer Reading performers and teen gaming nights.
Though the process of restoring the Carnegie has been long, the effort was well worth it. The Upland Carnegie is one of only two remaining Carnegie Libraries in San Bernardino. The Carnegie also served as Upland’s first Civic Building, so restoring the building goes a long way in maintaining a small piece of history.
