The Carnegie Library Building is an historic building in Athens, Georgia. It was one of many such libraries donated by Andrew Carnegie which were named Carnegie Library after him. It was built in 1900 on the site of the state Normal School. On November 11, 1975, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.


It was used as a Navy Supply Corps Museum when the campus was the base of the Naval Supply Corps School.

The University of Georgia has renovated the building, which now houses a part of the university libraries. It has been given the name, Carnegie Library Learning Center.


The Carnegie Library primarily serves as an electronic library. Wi-fi access is available to students and faculty with a UGA login. The library provides computer workstations as well as printer and scanner access. It also provides “Bulldog Bikes” for students to check out for traveling around campus.

The Carnegie Library does not have its own print collection. However, students and faculty are allowed to drop off and pick up books and periodicals from the library’s location.

Hours of operation

The Carnegie Library Learning Center is open Mondays through Thursdays from noon to 6 pm and Sundays from 4 pm to 10 pm. It is closed on Fridays and holidays.
