An effort to revive the long-vacant Carnegie Library Building is continuing, even after the Alexandria City Council backed away from buying the building.


At the request of RayMar Associates, LLC, owners of the RayMar Building/Carnegie Library at 117 7th Avenue West, the Douglas County Historical Society Board recently met with a RayMar representative.

They explored options for using the building to best benefit DCHS, according to Carol Neumann, board member.
