Gloversville Library, a Carnegie building, circa 1905
The library building was constructed in 1904 with a $50,000 grant from Andrew Carnegie. The site, at the corner of Fremont and East Fulton Street, was the home of Alanson Judson, the first President of the Levi Parson's Library of Gloversville and Kingsborough, predecessor to the Gloversville Free Library.
