About Carnegie Library
The Carnegie Library of Perkiomen School was built in 1913 to serve the needs of both The Perkiomen School and the surrounding community. This library is the only one of its kind to be donated by Andrew Carnegie to a secondary school.
In 2010, Carnegie Library underwent extensive renovations, both to the building and the collection. A major weeding project removed nearly 9,000 outdated books from the shelves to make way for new books and e-resources. The space includes 20 networked student workstations, a classroom area with an ActivBoard, and comfortable reading areas as well as the original oak reading tables and circulation desk.
Nallo Media Center
The Nallo Center in the Hollenbach Middle School is where you'll find middle school students studying, working on computers, designing (and playing) computer games, writing original stories, editing videos, playing chess and Stratego, eating pizza with the Reading Olympics team, and, of course, finding new and exciting books to read.
