This neoclassical structure, a combination of Federalism and Great Reunion, was a gift of Andrew Carnegie to Wilberforce University. It was built in 1907 and was remodeled and enlarged in 1938. The building provided general reading, reference, browsing, and reserve rooms, and also served as the Wilberforce Museum. It now houses the administrative offices of the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center.

This library erected & given to Wilberforce University through the munificent kindness of Mr Andrew Carnegie MDCCCCIV
