Harrison Memorial Library

Harrison Memorial Library is the public library of the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Library service in Carmel began in 1906, when the Carmel Free Library Association began lending books from a little redwood building. For a fee of one dollar per year, people could borrow any one of 500 books from the Association's "Reading Room" heated by a wood burning stove.
