The 13th Street Colored Branch Library, also known as the Carnegie Library for Blacks, opened in 1913 on a site donated by St. Paul Methodist Church. The library was one of twelve segregated libraries funded by Andrew Carnegie. The one-story, red brick building was the first and only library for African Americans in the state until after WWI and served Meridian's African American community for more than sixty years. Closed in 1974, the building was demolished in 2008.
