On April 27, 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt broke ground for the construction of a new Grand Island public library. A $20,000 Carnegie Corporation grant assisted with the building costs. Designed by the architectural firm of Tyler and Son of Lincoln, Nebraska, the 1906 Neo-classical Revival Style, two story, high basement brick structure was built by Henry Falldorf and Otto Dirschke, Grand Island contractors. The library building is now called the Roosevelt Office Center.
