Earlsdon Library was opened in 1913, one of three Carnegie libraries in Coventry. It is a classic, small, single-storey, welcoming library with a grand entrance and a characterful interior with many original features which were uncovered during restoration work . Despite its local importance and prominent position next to a primary school, it came under repeated threats of closure. Nevertheless, Carnegie's gift and vision were fought for and preserved by local people and, happily, it is now known as the Earlsdon Carnegie Community Library.
