Carnegie Library Tour of Washington

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash-- If you are looking for a more economical or educational, way to take your family on a vacation you might want to go on a tour of Carnegie buildings.

Famous for his rags-to riches story, steel-man Andrew Carnegie built more than 2,000 libraries across the United States. There are 33 in Washington.

One is in Pasco and it's now the Franklin County Historical Museum. Carnegie attributed a lot of his success to being able to visit a library as a young boy.

"He wanted to give back to the community and he thought that libraries were a really great way for people to help themselves," said Sherrel Weber.

You can stop by the museum in Pasco off 4th and Bonneville Street. Admission to the museum is free.
