National Register of Historic Places in Placer County
The Lincoln Carnegie Library, designed by Allen D. Fellows, is a small, almost cubical, building of brick trimmed with terra cotta, one story over a high raised basement and topped by a tile hipped roof. It is an example of the Classical Revival style in which the central element does not break the roof line and in this case does not project from the main façade.
The library is one of the many nearby downtown brick buildings of its period and older, but it is distinguished by its classical style and its setting - raised, set back from the sidewalk by stairs, freestanding. Gladding McBean Pottery, source of its brick and terra cotta, is visible a few blocks to the north.
