About The Washington Park Library

Washington Park Library - St. Joseph, MOThe land for the Washington Park Library was donated by the St. Joseph Extension Company in honor of Washington Jones, a prominent community leader in St. Joseph in the early 1900′s. This friendly Northside library opened on June 23, 1910 and was built with funds from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation. The building has exterior architectural features such as open books and holly berry decorations. The library boasts many original oak furnishings such as the circulation desk, stack shelving, book display shelves, library tables and interior staircase. A significant interior architectural detail is a quote above the main doorway by Andrew Carnegie “The universal education of its people is the greatest glory of the state.”
