Significance: The Anne Wallace Branch Carnegie Library was the first branch library in Atlanta. Built in 1908, and named after the first librarian of the Carnegie Library System of Atlanta (predecessor to the Fulton County Library System), the Anne Wallace Branch represents the early history of libraries in Atlanta. As part of the original Carnegie Library System, the Anne Wallace Branch represents a piece of the history of public libraries in the United States; including Andrew Carnegie's legacy of public libraries around the country. ... Miss Wallace also played a part in the formation of a state library association which was to become the Georgia Library Association as well as the establishment of the first professional training school in the South for the education of librarians. This school was supported by the Carnegie Foundation and was housed in the new Carnegie Library building. The school was later relocated to Emory University in 1930.
