The Carnegie Building was built in 1908. The two-story Mission Style building remained St Helena's library until 1979. The Carnegie Building went through a much-needed earthquake retrofit in 1980 (source: St Helena Historical Society), and now serves as a small community and event space. It features a meeting room and Great Room on the first floor, as well as a dance room on the second floor. The facility is ADA compliant with a ramp to the basement level and elevator that reaches each floor. A unisex restroom is available on the first and second floors. A small kitchen is located in the basement level. The facility is air-conditioned and has public Wi-Fi available.
