Carnegie Library, 101 N. Garfield Ave.

Built with a $12,000 grant from Andrew Carnegie (Pittsburgh, PA steel magnate and philanthropist), this was Pocatello's first library and an outstanding example of Palladian Villa architecture.  The cornerstone was laid on October 16, 1907 and contains a letter from Carnegie, names of the mayor and city council members, coins of 1907, and copies of three local newspapers.  A modern addition built in 1993 allows the historic library to continue to serve the community.
