Bideford Free Library (1905, Grade II listed) was a gift to the town from Carnegie. It is in a prominent position on The Quay, one of a group of three important civic buildings including the Town Hall. The Pevsner guide writes that it is 'in quite a playful free Tudor...enlivened by a tower, an...oriel, and a corner balcony and turret'. It's an impressive building which conveys a sense of the high and enduring value of its purpose and contents, and is now managed by the charity Libraries Unlimited.
