In 1899 the City of Leavenworth voted a tax levy for a library. Women's clubs, by library fund raising activities, accumulated $3,000 and steel magnate Andrew Carnegie contributed $30,000. The total was enough to build and equip the facility.

The library opened in May 1902.

Leavenworth's Carnegie Library was the first to be funded in Kansas and is among the last to serve in its original structure.
