Panguitch Carnegie Library
75 East Center Street
Built 1918

The Panguitch Carnegie Library is a one story rectangular brick building with a raised basement and a flat roof. It was designed in no particular style, but the balance of the decorative elements and openings on the facade, and the suggestion of a classical portico in the frontispiece of the entrance give it a slightly classical flavor.

Carnegie funded the construction of over 1,650 library buildings in the United States. Twenty-three were built in Utah. Sixteen remain.

Excerpted from the NRHP nomination submitted in June 1984.
