The theme of building patronage has been nowhere more resonant than in the philanthropy of Andrew Carnegie. Of his efforts, the Library Program is the most well-known. In North Dakota, thirteen Carnegie Libraries were built between 1901 and 1916. In 1902, Grafton citizens wrote a letter asking for a grant for the library building and started a campaign to raise money for construction. The library is open to the public Monday through Friday 12 pm to 5 pm.
