The Medford Carnegie Library is a noteworthy example of the modest-scale civic buildings of the first decade of the 20th century which emulated the high-style work of architects trained in the tradition of the École des Beaux Arts.
Construction began in the year the Carnegie Corporation issued its general guidelines, Notes on the Erection of Library Buildings, and it conformed to the Classical Revival rectangular, single-story building atop high basement which was to become the Carnegie Library standard across the country.
The architect was J. A. McIntosh.
