The Carnegie Library in Anaheim, California is a Carnegie Library building built in 1908 and is the only remaining Andrew Carnegie-financed public library left standing in Orange County. It was a public library until 1963. During the 1970s it served as the personnel office for the City of Anaheim, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It is now one of the buildings of the Muzeo, a museum of local culture, history and art.


Part of the Anaheim Public Library system, the Anaheim Heritage Center is located adjacent to Muzeo’s Main Gallery. Opened in 1967, this history room contains almost a million items organized and cataloged for use by scholars, students and researchers. Trained library personnel are on hand and available to offer assistance. Please visit their website for more information.
