The Caldwell Veterans' Council is rehabbing Caldwell's historic Carnegie Library.
The building will be the home of four veterans' organizations, the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Disabled American Veterans and the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
Renovation work began in September. The Veterans' Council is accepting donations from the public for the project. If you're interested in helping, contact Craig Kline at 570-2472 or John Muirhead at 623-826-3998.
The renovated building will include office space, as well as a space the Council can rent out for public events, a banquet hall, auditorium and full commercial kitchen.
The Carnegie Library in Caldwell, 1101 Cleveland Blvd., is one of 11 libraries built in Idaho between 1903 and 1914 with money from the Carnegie Corporation founded by steel magnate Andrew Carnegie. Caldwell's library was built in 1914. It operated as a library until 1976. In 1979, the National Park Service certified the building as a national historic site.
